Welcome to the Texas Social Studies Supervisors Association (TSSSA) website.
TSSSA is an organization provides a place for Social Studies supervisors from across the state to share ideas and learn from each other about the most current research in social studies education and the most up to date information on social studies events at the state level. We are excited about our new website look and hope this better serves our membership.
Interested in serving the Social Studies Community?
Then run for an office on the TSSSA board. Please see the file for information about up-coming elections at the Spring Conference in Austin.

Texas Legislature Online – Report 1/24/2013
Collaborative Project Opportunity
The Internet2 K20 Initiative and our national content providers are seeking innovative educators to be a part of a unique opportunity to impact classrooms. Through this opportunity, educators will create a problem-based collaborative project for 2013-2014 incorporating direct communication and interaction with experts across the nation around primary source materials.
Using interactive videoconferencing, discussion threads and other 21st Century communication skills, students will clarify, evaluate and synthesize primary source information directly with personnel at the nation’s National Parks, Presidential Libraries and the Library of Congress.
The panel of innovators will convene several times during the summer to design the collaborative project. The only requirement to participate is a sufficient internet connection.
If you are interested, please contact Lea Castillo at 512-919-5172 or firstname.lastname@example.org by June 7, 2013.
