SQCC Participated at the 97th Annual National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS)

Friday, November 17, 2017

On 17 and 18 November, SQCC participated in the 97th annual National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) conference in San Francisco. SQCC's staff promoted the Indian Ocean in World History (IOWH) website, a free classroom resource that is comprised of signature maps, lesson plans, quizzes, trivia and much more, with no need to register for the website. The website is interactive and features a map section with primary resource entries in categories of documents, travelers, routes, goods, technologies, objects, places, and geography.

Some guests were familiar with IOWH and expressed their appreciation of the site. In addition to learning about IOWH, guests also learned about Oman’s culture, history, geography and tradition. Some giveaways included frankincense, brochures and bookmarks.
