KDE hosts Kentucky Civics Symposium


The Kentucky Department of Education will host the 2017 Kentucky Civics Symposium to promote best practices in civic education this summer at four locations.

Speakers will provide educators with support in creating civic curricula with robust, relevant learning experiences for students in an effort to promote the “doing” of social studies through action civics. Information regarding the new citizenship test also will be provided.

Here is the schedule for the symposiums:

  • June 19 – Frankfort, Old State Capitol and Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History
  • July 10 – Elizabethtown, Hardin County Schools Early College and Career Center
  • July 14 – Ashland, Kentucky Educational Development Corporation
  • July 27 – Murray, Murray State University
