On February 9 & 10, 2018, Street Law will provide a comprehensive 2-day teacher professional development for secondary social studies teachers and supervisors. This professional development is designed to give teachers exciting, interactive strategies that will engage students in civics and government lessons.
This Seminar will include:
- current public issues in civics and government, like equal protection, First Amendment, immigration, gun laws, and limits of search and seizure
- engaging strategies for building students’ civic skills like constructing arguments, evaluating claims, deliberating, negotiating, and taking action
- an observation of federal court proceedings and meeting with a federal judge
The Seminar includes breakfast and lunch on both days, attendance stipends, a binder full of classroom-ready materials, and the newest edition of the McGraw-Hill U.S. Government textbook. Substitute teacher reimbursements are available if needed for teacher release on February 9. It is completely free to teachers (a value of more than $1,200 for each participant)!
San Diego-area teachers who teach or supervise secondary (middle and high school) social studies are eligible to attend.
Street Law thanks the following generous supporters: Price Philanthropies, the San Diego County Bar Association, and McGraw-Hill Education.
