Street Law’s Teaching for Civic Engagement Seminars give teachers the opportunity to explore current issues in civics and government while practicing strategies for building students’ civic skills. The seminars are led by Street Law staff, who are joined by a variety of legal experts, and address current public issues like free speech, voting rights, immigration, gun control, and foreign and domestic policy. Teachers will explore new ways to teach required civics/government topics, including federalism, state and local government, and the court systems.
