Summer Institute

Classroom Law Project’s Summer Institute is an intensive, 3-day collaborative seminar held at the end of each school year. Its purpose is to feed teachers’ minds, celebrate their expertise, and give them new tools and strategies as they plan for the coming year. We focus the Summer Institute on Oregon laws and issues so that educators can incorporate what they learn into their teaching about the Constitution, government, and civics.

Attendees learn from and interact with scholars and participate in active learning simulations and other fun strategies they can implement in the classroom. Plus, it’s three days of mingling with fellow Oregon teachers and sharing ideas and fun!

Beginning at the December Civics Conference for Teachers, we will advertise the theme, dates, and registration details for the coming Summer Institute. Registration is usually open through late April and the Institute usually occurs the third week of June.
