In 2015, the Oregon Legislature declared the first Friday of each December as “Oregon Civics Day for Teachers.” To celebrate, Classroom Law Project hosts an educators’ conference on that day every year at the State Capitol in Salem.
The Oregon Civics Conference for Teachers is open to educators at all levels. Each year participants get an insider’s view of all three branches of Oregon government, unique civics teaching strategies, and materials you can apply immediately to your teaching. Before your winter holiday, refresh your mind and your curriculum, connect with teachers from around the state, and spend a day at the Capitol learning new ways to make Civics come alive in your classroom!
Attendees to the Conference earn 6 PDU Hours and are eligible to register at a reduced price for 0.5 Credit from Lewis & Clark Graduate School of Education (worth 15 more PDUs).
