The Judiciary History Center is accepting applications for the School Violence Prevention Demonstration Program workshops for the 2009-2010 school year. The free program is open to public and private school social studies teachers of grades 5 and 8 and high school teachers who teach Participation in Democracy and U.S History. The application deadline is June 30.
Participants will attend three, two-day workshops during the school year, and will be instructed in constitutional history and theory, the Bill of Rights, citizenship and the Constitution, public policy theory, learning strategies, integration methods and assessment tools.
The goal of the program is to demonstrate that the use of quality civic education curricular materials and interactive, performance-based teaching strategies will improve students' tolerance for the ideas of others, attitude towards authority, and ability to act as responsible citizens.
For more information or to obtain an application form, contact Keahe Davis at 539-4994 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Funding for the program was provided by the Center for Civic Education.
