The Institute will be held June 16-21 & June 23-28, 2016 in Washington, D.C. The Institute includes sessions led by Supreme Court experts, journalists, authors, and attorneys, who give social studies educators an in-depth understanding of how the Court chooses and decides cases and what it is like to argue before the Court.
The Institute covers six current or recent cases. This opportunity culminates with a visit to the Supreme Court building to hear decisions handed down and attend a private reception. The Institute prepares social studies educators to use and promote innovative teaching methods with current and past cases. Beyond the content-rich sessions and activities, social studies educators are also equipped with the skills and tools to train fellow teachers at home.
