Workshop Overview

Join teachers from across the country and engage with ideologically diverse constitutional scholars for a virtual three-day workshop on the Bill of Rights with the National Constitution Center in July 2021. This seminar is open exclusively to members of the Center’s Teacher Advisory Council. 

During the Virtual Seminar educators work with content experts to deepen their understanding of the influences on the creation of the Bill of Rights, the arguments around its necessity and ratification, and the way the Bill of Rights has been interpreted throughout history. With master teachers and the education team from the National Constitution Center, participants discover and develop innovative, nonpartisan ways to make the first ten amendments to the Constitution applicable to their students.

The virtual workshop will emphasize the National Constitution Center's Interactive Constitution and other resources from the National Constitution Center to explore changing historical and constitutional examples of the rights enshrined in the Bill of Rights.

There is no fee to attend the workshop; but, a successful application is required.

Applications are being accepted through Friday, January 29, 2021. All applicants will be notified by Friday, February 26, 2021, regarding acceptance to the Institute.

Average time to complete this application is 15 minutes.
