TRUMBULL, Conn. -- Trumbull High School teacher Katie Boland of Milford will travel to Washington, D.C., to attend a Georgetown University Law Center & U.S. Supreme Court event called "Street Law's Supreme Court Summer Institute for Teachers."
After a highly competitive application process, 60 teachers were selected to participate this year.
The Institute, open to teachers in the fields of law-related and civic education, is co-sponsored by Street Law, Inc. and the Supreme Court Historical Society.
The Institute offers teachers the opportunity to study recent Supreme Court Cases in detail and learn innovative teaching methodology for conveying this information to students.
Supreme Court lawyers, reporters, scholars and educators will be among the speakers and instructors for the Institute.
Teachers will visit the Court to attend decisions and a reception. Upon returning home, teachers will be available to present workshops on the U.S. Supreme Court, and to meet with media to discuss how the new skills and information will apply in their classrooms.
