Grade 4 to 8 Teachers Eligible for CEAS (Civics that Empowers All Students) Grant

The Center for Civic Education received a three year SEED (Supporting Effective Educator Development) grant from the U.S. Department of Education in late September which will give upper elementary and middle school teachers the opportunity for professional development. The first year of the research grant called CEAS (Civics that Empowers All Students) began in January, 2023 with the states learning more about the grant.

We are accepting applications until we reach 30 teachers. As the flyer states, teachers who teach in grades 4 to 8 and have not received professional development in We the People before, may apply. They must also have the opportunity to use the We the People text during the 2023-24 school year to be eligible. Some of the perks are a free set of textbooks (at the level of their choice, Level 1 or 2), listening to recognized scholars, a year’s worth of assistance with a mentor, and a stipend of $500.

In the first part of Year One, the summer institute will take part at the University of Massachusetts at Boston from August 6 through 11, 2023. Of the 52 hours of professional development, 36 hours will take place during this 5 and 1/2 day institute. The remaining 16 hours will be spread out during the 2023-24 school year.
