"In Small Places, Close to Home: Cultivating Human Rights"
The Idaho Humanities Council is hosting our annual week-long summer teacher institute July 22-27th, 2024 at Boise State University in partnership with the Wassmuth Center for Human Rights. The theme for 2024 is "In Small Places, Close to Home: Cultivating Human Rights."
At this institute, educators will explore how to foster learning communities that contribute to creating a world where every individual’s human rights are protected and promoted. A full description of the institute and a link to the application is available below. We encourage educators from across the state to apply and attend.
Applications will be due Friday, March 15th, 2024. All participants will be immersed in the study of the humanities. We open the week to 30-40 teachers and provide all expenses –room, board, texts and materials, and a $250 travel stipend.
We seek applicants from every region of the state and select participants to provide a balance in regions, disciplines taught, grade levels taught, gender, and a mix of new participants with veteran institute participants. Teachers have the option to register for continuing education credits.
This institute is made possible by the Endowment for Humanities Education and the National Endowment for the Humanities and a grant from the Idaho Courts Community Outreach program.
If you have questions about the teacher institute, please contact Director of Programs, Johanna Bringhurst at firstname.lastname@example.org.
