Institute Calendar & Syllabus
While the preparatory readings are at the college level and are rooted primarily in history, the subject matter covers a range of disciplines from literature, journalism, sociology, art, music—so that the inspired, creative teacher of any grade will be self-enriched as well as find opportunities to bring their students into this world.
Please note that while presenters and dates have been confirmed, there is always a possibility of change. This site will be updated when/if changes occur.
