I’ve heard good things about this program from teachers who have participated in the past. Now’s your chance to join that group!
The Washington State Legislature is pleased to announce that we are offering the Legislative Scholars Program again this summer, July 13-16 in Olympia. The Legislative Scholars Program offers elementary/middle/high school social studies, government, history and civics teachers an interactive experience where they will gain an inside view of the legislative process. Teachers will meet with members, staff, and guest speakers and will bring back lesson plans that help meet civics CBAs. Teachers also have the option to return to Olympia during the 2010 legislative session to observe and possibly shadow a legislator. Information can be found here.
The application is due by June 30, 2009. Teachers are responsible for their own food, lodging, and transportation expenses for the program.
