If teaching about the judicial branch of government is part of your curriculum, then this FREE professional development workshop is for you.  Join the United States Courts and the Judicial Learning Center for a full-day of learning at the federal courthouse.

See the U.S. Constitution in action.  This workshop will include a live courtroom observation and several sessions with judges and other legal professionals.  Participants will take home a wealth of ideas, resources, and lessons.  Participants will also learn about how to plan a courthouse field trip and to apply for a bus transportation grant.  This event is designed for high school and middle school social studies teachers.

NOTE for those who attended last summer – new content will be included.

This event is FREE, but a registration is required so that complimentary parking and materials can be provided.  Register any time, but please no later than July 7.
