A three-week institute for twenty-five school teachers on the Reformation.

This three week summer institute for high school teachers, to be held at the Meeter Center at Calvin College, Grand Rapids, MI, from June 29 to July 17, 2009, will enable high school instructors from around the country to engage with the best and most accessible scholarship on the Reformation and to develop teaching materials that help their students make sense of the Reformation. The three key topics to be dealt with in the institute are belief systems as expressed by the Reformation's different confessional groups (Catholic, Lutheran, Anabaptist and Reformed); practices (worship, church discipline and outreach); and conflicts and resolutions (between civil and religious powers, different branches of the Christian church, or within confessional groups). Participants will interact with experts in the field and will build portfolios of aural, visual and written primary sources to stimulate class discussion and enrich their students' understanding of the Reformation era's significance.
