A three-week institute for twenty-five school teachers on the principles of American constitutionalism.

The Center for Civic Education proposes to conduct a Summer Institute on "Political and Constitutional Theory for Citizens: The National Academy for Civics and Government" for 25 participants in the summer of 2013. This Summer Institute, like its predecessors, is based on the perspective that all citizens of the United States, under the Constitution, can and must acquire a capacity to think theoretically about the nature of democracy and constitutionalism. William F. Harris II of the University of Pennsylvania, who was the founding director of the Center for the Constitution at James Madison’s Montpelier, will lead the Institute. He has served as the academic director of the last 13 of the Center for Civic Education’s Summer Institutes. Three eminent scholars of constitutional theory will serve as Institute faculty as well. In addition, three master teachers will provide follow-up instruction in educational applications, with assistance from the staff of the Center.
