On August 2-3, 2016, Street Law will bring a group of secondary teachers together for professional development designed to give teachers exciting, interactive strategies that will engage students in civics and government lessons.
Topics will include:
current public issues in civics and government (including voting rights and restrictions, political polarization, medical and recreational marijuana, and America’s role in the world)
required government and civics content (including state and local government, foreign policy, federalism, and the judiciary)
engaging strategies for building students’ civic skills like constructing arguments, evaluating claims, deliberating, negotiating, and taking action.
This Seminar will be held in Washington, DC. We’ll provide breakfast and lunch on both days and a vast array of classroom-ready resources to take home. Participants will commit to take part in brief pre- and post-training online activities (less than three hours each), as well.
This seminar is funded by generous donations from individual Street Law supporters and hosted by King & Spalding LLP.
