During the summer of 2024, GeoCivics will be hosting an exciting place-based educational experience in Washington, D.C., to learn how to include diverse perspectives in the education space through civic engagement and advocacy in your American history, geography, civics and government instruction.
During the program, we will celebrate Juneteenth in our Capital and meet with educators, historians, experts and advocacy groups. We will also visit historic locations such as the White House, the U.S. Capitol and museums to deepen content knowledge of civic engagement and advocacy and strengthen pedagogical knowledge and skills.
Applications will be accepted through Dec. 5th, 2023. Please note that this is a competitive application and have an updated resume ready upon completing this application.
The program will be held June 12-22, 2024 and all expenses will be paid. In order to be eligible, you must currently be a teacher of record in a U.S. K-12 classroom, and actively teaching social studies or plan to in the 2024-2025 school year. Special considerations will be made to teachers who have high populations of English learners in their classroom.
