Little Rock Central High National Historic Site invites teachers to apply for the 2011 Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site Teachers’ Institute that will focus on the Civil Rights Movement. This Institute will bring teachers together in Little Rock, Arkansas from Sunday, July 17, 2011 through Friday, July 22, 2011 for a comprehensive study of the Civil Rights Movement with emphasis in school desegregation.
Teachers will examine the Civil Rights Movement in Arkansas using primary and secondary sources; examine components of the Civil Rights Movement; analyze fundamental rights of individuals such as civil liberties, due process, and equal protection; and examine Supreme Court cases which have altered the interpretation of the United States Constitution: Plessy v. Ferguson and Brown v. Board of Education in a student-centered approach by using best practices.
Teachers will receive an honorarium to cover travel cost; amount to be determined in April.
