2023 Summer Institute for Teachers:

Creating Civic Spaces Together

Join CLP staff, guest presenters, and educators from around the state for 3 days of learning and collaboration. Sessions focus on implementing Community Action Projects and Mock Trial in the classroom, and include presentations to help you incorporate the optional 2021 ODE Social Science Civics Standards into your curriculum. The popular Coffee with Legislators will be back, along with a tour of the newly renovated Oregon Supreme Court.

Participants will receive a copy of Civil Discourse: Classroom Conversations for Stronger Communities by Joe Schmidt and Nichelle Pinkney in advance to prepare for a social book club chat during Summer Institute. Other materials, housing, meals, and travel stipends are provided for Oregon K-12 educators.

A $50 deposit is required to hold your spot, and will be refunded when you check in at Summer Institute.
