The deadline to apply for the few remaining spots for the 2018 North Dakota Supreme Court Justices Teaching Institute is extended to June 1. The event is scheduled for October 18-19, 2018, in Bismarck.
All secondary government, history, and social studies teachers are invited to apply to attend this day-and-a-half educational experience.
The Justices Teaching Institute involves the study of the North Dakota court system, judicial decision making, and the United States Constitution. Participants will experience a wide range of sessions, dialogue, and activities with the North Dakota Supreme Court Justices. The 2018 Institute will focus on the Fourth Amendment.
The participants play the role of a Justice on the Supreme Court, hearing an oral argument on a Fourth Amendment case, conferencing, and then deciding the case. Teachers walk in the shoes of a Justice and learn how a case makes its way to the Supreme Court and how it is ultimately decided by the court.
There is no fee for this program. Expenses for lodging, meals, and mileage will be reimbursed.
The Institute is designed to provide the minimum contact time of 15 program hours, including 12 hours on-site and three additional hours for classroom implementation, as required for the participants to earn one graduate credit from the University of North Dakota. The cost of the credit is also covered by the program.
To apply to the 2018 North Dakota Justice Teaching Institute, contact Lee Ann Barnhardt at 701- 328-4251 or email email@example.com.
