Summer Institute: July 28 – 31, 2008

Constitutional Connections, in collaboration with the Constitutional Rights Foundation, will host a summer institute July 28 – 31 at ESD 112 in Vancouver, Washington. Featured speakers include Diana Hess and Jack M. Beard. Dr. Hess is a true expert in encouraging conversation in the Social Studies classroom; Dr. Beard’s 14 years working for the Defense Department allow him a unique perspective from which to discuss recent history: It should be a terrific four days.

The institute will center around three strands:

  1. Understanding constitutional dilemmas in 20th Century US history;
  2. Promoting effective classroom deliberation over controversial public and constitutional issues; and
  3. Making History instruction relevant.

The program is free but advanced registration is required. To register, contact Matt Karlsen.
