Democracy, civics and active participation in the community are not things with which we are born — they must be learned.Which is why Classroom Law Project brings vital and engaging civics and law-related education programs into Oregon schools, teaching students at all grade levels the values and skills essential to being a participating citizen in our democracy. Each year, our innovative, timely, practical and fun programs involve and inspire over 400 teachers and 24,000 students from 250 schools in 75 Oregon communities.

On November 4, Oregonians will select a governor, United States senator, and seven statewide initiatives. Classroom Law Project offers great lessons in September so you have time to teach them. For teachers of middle grades through high school, this hands-on, interactive professional development opportunity offers content; strategies; great speakers and classroom support. “Qualified” teachers are regular teachers like you; that is, teachers with assignments where they have the opportunity and intention to teach from the lessons. It excludes teachers who are unemployed, retired, without appropriate classes (say, math), and so on.
We hope to see you and colleagues at the workshop!
