SIG Chair
Thank you for your interest in the Social Studies Research SIG of AERA. As stated in our bylaws:

The purposes of the SIG are to initiate, exchange, and advance research relevant to social studies education found in P-12 schools and classrooms with students,  teachers, and administrators; teacher education programs with teacher candidates, practicing teachers, school administrators, and teacher educators; and in relationship to active citizenship in families, communities, society, and policymakers.

We view this work as necessary for accepting our educational responsibilities to challenge systemic forms of oppression, pursue justice-oriented instruction, and promote active citizenship in the next generation of learners and leaders.

Throughout the 2020-2021 academic year, the Executive Committee of the SIG plans to provide resources and opportunities to consider our roles in these efforts for our members and the larger educational community. We hope you will join in these endeavors.

Andrea M. Hawkman

Chair, Social Studies Research SIG
