Summer might feel like it is a long way right now. But now is the time to start thinking about and planning for professional development you might do this summer. To that end, the National Archives is now accepting applications for the 2023 Civics for All U.S. Teacher Institute.
The 2023 Civics for All U.S. Teacher Institute is a week-long event held in Washington D.C. the week of July 17th. The big goal of the event is for participants to develop teaching activities that explore big civics ideas while utilizing primary sources from the National Archives.
Applications for the institute are open now and close on March 31st. To be eligible you have to be a teacher work with students in third grade or higher. Those who are accepted to participate receive a $2450 stipend to use toward travel and other associated costs of attending.
If I was still teaching social studies, I would be applying for this institute.
