Arcadia University is partnering with the National Constitution Center for the center’s 2010 Summer Teacher Institutes. “This will be the third summer partnering with the NCC,” says Debbie Schwartz, Coordinator Arcadia’s Center for Adult and Professional Education programs. Arcadia offers three graduate-level credits for students who successfully complete an institute.
In the NCC Summer Institutes, educators spend a week learning history and government at the National Constitution Center in the heart of Historic Philadelphia. The center’s Summer Teacher Institutes offer educators a unique opportunity to collaborate with scholars, leading experts and colleagues from across the country to gain content knowledge on a variety of topics and new methods to educate students. The Annenberg Summer Teacher Institutes cover “Changing the Constitution: Politics and Law in American Constitutional Development” and “America's Constitution and the World.” The NEH Landmarks in American History Workshop is on “A Revolution in Government: Philadelphia, American Independence and the Constitution, 1765-1791.”
