We the People: The Citizen & the Constitution - 5th Grade Teacher Training

Tuesday & Wednesday, July 12th-13th 

9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

We the People: The Citizen & the Constitution teaches upper elementary students about civics, government, and active citizenship. Students explore the history and principles of American constitutional democracy through critical thinking, cooperative learning, and a unique and engaging culminating activity: a simulated congressional hearing. 

This training session is for 5th-grade teachers and will cover each module of the We the People program and address questions like: 

  • What is the Constitution?
  • How did the Framers write our Constitution?
  • How does the Constitution organize our government?
  • How does the Constitution protect our basic rights?
  • What are the responsibilities of citizens? 

Each session will include discussion time about the topic and providing actionable lesson plans ready for your classroom.

Participants will receive a $200 stipend for attending andup to $400* in funding to run the mock congressional hearing in their classroom.

*Certain requirements must be met to be eligible to receive the additional funding. This will be explained in more detail at the training. 

A modest mileage stipend will be added to the $200 to help assist travel costs. 
Lodging is provided for the night for people attending that live more than 70 miles from UVU.

Registration closes at 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, June 14th.
