DESE is sponsoring 110 social studies teachers and social studies coaches, as well as 100 preservice teachers, to attend the MCSS Annual Conference, February 23rd and 24th, 2024, at the Springfield University Plaza Hotel. In order to receive reimbursement for registration, attendees must attend the Teaching Civics and Patriotism in Your Classroom session at the conference. Session description:

This session will provide intriguing insights into upcoming DESE resources for K-12 teachers' classroom use in civics and patriotism instruction. These materials have been collaboratively developed by educators from across the state, specifically tailored to align with the Missouri Learning Standards that emphasize Civics and Patriotism. Join us to explore how these lessons can integrate seamlessly into a comprehensive K-12 social studies curriculum, promoting inquiry, critical thinking, community engagement, and civic involvement.


Upon completing the session, recipients must:

  • Complete a brief questionnaire following the session

  • Fill out the reimbursement form after the session

Those who are already registered for the conference can apply for a refund by filling out the Reimbursement form after the session.
