Street Law, Inc. is now accepting online applications for the 2013 Supreme Court Summer Institute for Teachers. This year, two sessions will be held on June 13-18 and 20-25, 2013.
Co-sponsored by the Supreme Court Historical Society, the Institute is designed to expand and strengthen instruction about the history, operation, and cases of the Supreme Court of the United States. Over 900 teachers have attended the Institute since its inception in 1995.
The Institute is open to secondary level social studies teachers and supervisors, who will spend six stimulating days on Capitol Hill and inside the Supreme Court learning about the Court, its past and current cases, and how to teach about them from top Supreme Court litigators and educators. We will also be in the Court to hear the Justices announce the final decisions of the term and attend a private reception at the Court.
Applications for the Supreme Court Summer Institute for Teachers are due March 11, 2013.
