HS Civics PD – Expenses Paid

Via the Michigan Center for Civic Education

The Michigan Center for Civic Education is sponsoring a year of supported civics learning for secondary teachers interested in research-driven, student-participatory learning. We are currently recruiting teachers to apply for participating in a third cohort of the James Madison Legacy Project with all expenses paid as well as a $500 stipend for successfully completing the project.

Cohort III will kick off with a summer institute July 23-28 in Lansing plus two additional sessions – November 16-17 in Grand Rapids and January 11-12 in Lansing.

Teachers who participate will receive the following:

  • In-depth content instruction;
  • Engaging instructional strategies;
  • A set of classroom instructional materials;
  • $500 stipend;
  • Paid lodging expenses for all sessions;
  • Complementary meals;

In exchange, teachers will commit to conduct Congressional Hearing Simulations into their classroom to delve deep into Constitutional principles and issues. Teachers and their students will also take a pre and post test to assess the impact of the We the People curriculum has on knowledge and sense of political efficacy. A full list of commitments is available to review.

The flyer contains links to both the application and the FAQ.
