Join Us July 10-13 in Bend, Oregon!
We will be back in beautiful and sunny Bend, this time at the new OSU-Cascades campus. The Institute begins at 11:00am, Monday, July 11, and ends at 3:00pm, Thursday, July 13. We will work you – we go until 8:00 every night – but it will be worth it!
This institute will explore the acclaimed civics curriculum, We The People: The Citizen & the Constitution. Teachers will be a part of the Center for Civic Education’s James Madison Legacy Project and get a classroom set of free textbooks plus a $1000 stipend, not to mention great PD with constitutional scholars, mentoring from master teachers, and networking with teachers from across the state!
