Welcome to the South Carolina Council for the Social Studies!

Are you looking for resources for Teaching Equity and Anti-Racism?  If so, go to For the Classroom and check out the new list!  This will be updated as new sources come out, also please share resources you come across! 


We are proceeding with a virtual conference instead of a face-to-face conference this year.  The new dates will be the evenings of October 6, 7, and 8th from 6:00-9:00pm.  We have also extended the deadline to submit a presentation proposal.  Please see the "Conference" page for more information.


On Tuesday, May 28, 2019, Governor Henry McMaster signed into the law the 2019-2020 budget, which contains a proviso that eliminates social studies state assessment in grades 5 and 7. The 11th grade US History/Constitution End of Course exam will continue to be administered. 

As you end the school year, the SCCSS would like for all teachers to make note about any changes in schools with the absence of state testing at the elementary and middle levels in the 2019-2020 academic year.

SCCSS will continue to advocate for equitable instructional time and access to professional development and resources so that teachers can provide quality social studies instruction to all students in South Carolina!
