Join us for the 2019 SLCEC Civic Education Summer Institute on June 21-22!
The Summer Institute is designed for pre-service teacher candidates and will focus on the four required pedagogies in the new state civics mandate:
- Service-Learning/Informed Action
- Discussion of Current and Controversial Issues
- Simulation of Democratic Processes
- Instruction in Government Institution and Processes
You will have opportunities to learn about and practice these pedagogies, network with other teacher candidates from Chicago universities, discover resources that can help you develop a civics toolkit, work with potential community partners, and ultimately prepare yourself to teach civics in the state of Illinois.
