Summer Institute Offered for High School Teachers

Published February 1, 2003

For the past two summers, the Bill of Rights Institute has conducted a week-long professional development course on the Bill of Rights for high school teachers of U.S. history and government. The Institute is now accepting applications for its Third Annual Summer Institute for High School Teachers.

The intensive 45-hour course will be held July 13-19, 2003 at George Mason University School of Law in Arlington, Virginia, just across the Potomac from the nation’s capital. Tuition is $300 and includes instruction, most meals, hotel accommodations, field trips, a reading resource book, and a 200-page teacher’s guide and 10-part video set.

The actual cost of the program is more than $2,000 per teacher, but the Institute is able to offer it for substantially less due to contributions made by more than 2,800 individuals and foundations to the Institute, a national nonprofit, education organization.
