The Institute includes sessions led by Supreme Court experts, journalists, authors, and lawyers, who give teachers an in-depth understanding of how the Court chooses and decides cases, and what it is like to argue before the Court. The Institute cover six current or recent cases, and teachers even learn about the personalities of the justices. This exciting opportunity culminates with a visit to the Court to hear decisions handed down and a reception at the Court.
The Institute prepares teachers to use innovative methods to teach about both current and historical cases. Beyond the content-rich sessions and activities, teachers are also equipped with the skills and tools to train fellow teachers at home.
Two Summer Institutes will be held in 2013: June 13-18 & June 20-25. The deadline for applications is March 11, 2013. Learn more and apply online.
