Civics and Civility: Exploring Primary Source Based Lessons
The Bill of Rights Institute is hosts free one-day workshop for charter school teachers Civics and Civility: Exploring Primary Source Based Lessons.
At this free one-day seminar, you will discover resources to help engage your students in examining the ideas that inspired America’s greatest founding documents. Primary sources include classroom-friendly resources on civic values, founding documents, current events and more. Our beloved curricula, Voices of History and Documents of Freedom, includes graphic organizers, role plays, and a glossary to help students understand some of the constitutional principles and civic virtues that animate the American Experiment.
We will provide you with easy-to-implement resources to bring these concepts alive as well as provide new methods to teach these topics to your students.
This workshop is best suited for high school U.S. History and Government teachers but is only open to those that teach in charter schools.
