Mar 09, 2017 / James Madison Legacy Project
From February 24-26, 2017, state coordinators and mentor teachers traveled from far and wide to meet in Southern California. The purpose: the second annual James Madison Legacy Project meeting. The project, made possible by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education through the Supporting Effective Educator Development program, focuses on giving teachers of high-need students quality professional development in civics and government.

During the three-day weekend, mentors and state coordinators enjoyed intensive group discussions, engaging speakers, and planning sessions with a focus on preparing for the third year of the project. Mentors and state coordinators worked hard all weekend long, proving exactly why the project yielded such promising results in its first year.
We can’t wait to see all of the ideas that sprouted during this weekend be transformed into reality during the coming months!
