SUMMER CONTENT INSTITUTE: THE FIRST AMENDMENT: PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICE *AUG 1-6, 2016* @ Suffolk University
Aug 1 @ 8:00 am – Aug 6 @ 4:30 am
SUMMER CONTENT INSTITUTE IN THE WORKS!!!
AUGUST 1, 2016 – AUGUST 6, 2016
SUFFOLK UNIVERSITY, BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS
The Massachusetts Council for the Social Studies and the Massachusetts Center for Civic Education are currently planning an intensive six-day content institute this summer at Suffolk University in downtown Boston (August 1 through August 6). 
The central focus of the content institute is “The First Amendment: Principles and Practice” and is open to primarily K-12 social studies teachers, pre-service teachers, and undergraduate and graduate students pursuing a career in history, government, law, and political science. The content institute is honored to present outstanding keynote speakers including Mary Beth Tinker & John Tinker (Tinker v. Ohio);, Catherine Kuhlmeier Frey (Hazelwood v. Kuhlmeier); Dr. David Hudson, Jr. of the Nashville School of Law and Professor Bob Allison of Suffolk University. 
The six days include a walking tour of Boston’s Freedom Trail, visit to the Museum of African American History and the African Meeting House on Beacon Hill, and explore the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library Museum and the Edward M. Kennedy Institute of the U.S. Senate. 
We are currently working with Framingham State University and Suffolk University to offer graduate credits for the successful completion of the six-day content institute. Workshops include sessions for teachers on incorporating the content learned from the seminars to design and develop meaningful instruction that can be implemented into the classroom.

 
Registration costs: $200 for MCSS members, $225 for NCSS members, $100 MACCE cohort 1, $325 non-MCSS members, $450 school members (send 3 teachers), $100 undergrad and graduate students, retired and pre-service teachers. 
REGISTRATION WILL OPEN IN LATE FEBRUARY 2016 ON OUR WEBSITE as well as MASSACHUSETTS CENTER FOR CIVIC ENGAGEMENT (http://www.masscivics.org). IN THE MEANTIME, IF YOU WISH TO STAY INFORMED OF THE 2016 SUMMER CONTENT INSTITUTE, ANNOUNCEMENTS AND UPDATED INFORMATION ABOUT REGISTRATION, PLEASE CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW AND FILL OUT THE FORM.
