A three-day institute at Florida Atlantic University for social studies teachers.
The Jack Miller Center is working with professors at Florida Atlantic University to offer a summer professional development program for middle and high school social studies teachers. The institute, Teaching Civics in Uncivil Times, will take a close look at key primary documents from the Founding to the Civil War and secondary sources like Hamilton: An American Musical.
In addition to scholar-led discussions, each day will include a classroom application session focused on engaging students with primary sources and strategies for teaching controversial topics in class.
The institute is entirely cost-free for teachers. Each day will run from 8:30 – 4:00. Breakfast and lunch will be provided daily. All participants will receive a $300 stipend and a Certificate of Completion.
