Nova Scotia Social Studies Teachers' Association

As a professional association of public school teachers in the field of social studies, the primary goals of the Nova Scotia Social Studies Teachers' Association (NSSSTA)  are to improve professional practice by increasing member knowledge and understanding, and to designate ideas, trends and new developments. 

Our members include active, retired and intern teachers of history, geography and related social studies from Primary to grade 12, as well as subscribing members from a variety of interest areas.

Through our website, and support for travel and professional and student development, we facilitate networking among teachers and promote access to teaching resources. We also provide a communications link between the Nova Scotia Teachers Union and social studies teachers. 

In addition to these ongoing activities, we organize an annual conference, providing an opportunity for teachers to hear speakers, participate in workshops and discover and acquire resources from a wide variety of  historical and geographic fields, and relevant to all grade levels.
