The mission of the Association of Teachers of Social Studies/UFT is to support New York City educators who teach social students and provide a network wherein social studies educators and related professionals may advocate for social studies education and share scholarship, information, strategies and practices related to the issues that are important and relevant to social studies instruction.

In support of this mission, we commit to:

  • Organize workshops and conferences to communicate information and strategies pertinent to social studies educators.
  • Use digital technologies to maintain effective lines of communication among social studies educators and other related professionals.
  • Support social studies educators and other related professionals in providing instruction that meets New York State learning standards.
  • Reflect the local concerns of New York City public school educators of social studies while maintaining our longstanding affiliations with the National Council of Social Studies and the New York State Council for Social Studies.
