Hello. Today's podcast is a summary of the sessions I attended last month at the 2006 National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) Conference in Washington, DC - December 1-3, 2006. It was a great conference and great place to share ideas, recharge the batteries and meet new people. The podcast gives a general overview of the sessions I attended and below is a listing of the presentations, presenters, and when possible a link for contact information.
