About Our Summer Institutes

Each summer we host a one-week institute for K-12 teachers on the U.S. Constitution. Approximately 30 participants from across the U.S. will convene in Philadelphia to engage in an intensive program involving readings about, lectures on, and analysis and discussions of constitutional law and Supreme Court case history. These activities will deepen the teachers’ understanding of the Constitution and the history of its evolving meaning and interpretation. In addition, participants will receive materials and tools to help them incorporate the study of institute into their teaching, including a list of books, casebook and suggested lesson plans/activities to enhance their current civics course content.
