On August 2-3, 2017, Street Law will bring a group of Washington, D.C.-area 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
required government and civics content
engaging strategies for building students’ civic skills like constructing arguments, evaluating claims, deliberating, negotiating, and taking action.
This Seminar will be held in Washington, D.C. We’ll provide breakfast and lunch on both days and a vast array of classroom-ready resources to take home. Teachers from DC public and charter schools (middle school and high school) are eligible to receive a scholarship in conjunction with their attendance. High school (or middle school) teachers in the Metro-DC area are also welcome to participate.
This seminar is funded by generous anonymous donors.
