This two-day Seminar (with accompanying pre-and-post training online activities) was held August 2-3 in Washington, DC. Together, we explored current issues in civics and government while practicing strategies for building students’ civic skills. A variety of legal experts joined us to cover pressing topics like political polarization, voting rights, and foreign and domestic policy. We discovered new ways to teach required civics/government topics, including federalism, state and local government, and the court systems.
This seminar was funded by generous donations from individual Street Law supporters.
