Albert H. Small Normandy InstituteAlbert H. Small Normandy InstituteThe Albert H. Small Normandy Institute will take fifteen student-teacher teams on the learning experience of a lifetime. The Institute is an intensive program to learn about the D-Day Campaign of 1944 and the sacrifices made by young Americans to defeat tyranny. Members of the Institute will begin studying World War II and the Normandy Campaign in January by reading materials provided by the Institute and participating in online discussions of those materials supervised by Institute staff from The George Washington University. From late June to early July 2022, Institute members will travel to the campus of The George Washington University in Washington, D.C., for a series of lectures and activities to deepen their understanding of elements of the conflict. Finally, the students and teachers will participate in a “staff-ride” (army-speak for a participatory educational tour led by GW professors) of many of the sites that played a role in the Normandy Campaign in France. Each student will be called upon to present a briefing concerning some element of the campaign at the appropriate site. For instance, a student giving a presentation on the Atlantic Wall will give their presentation inside one of the surviving German bunkers at Longues-Sur-Mer!. As a capstone to the Institute, each team will select a member of the United States Armed Forces who participated in the Normandy Campaign and gave his or her life in the effort to liberate France, to prevent the spread of the fascist tyranny imposed by Nazi Germany, and to preserve our liberty. Each team will then, with assistance from the Institute staff, learn about that service member’s life and write a biography of that soldier. The culmination of our Staff Ride will be an opportunity for the student member of each team to present a eulogy for their hometown hero while standing by his graveside in the Normandy American Cemetery at Colleville-Sur-Mer.

Avenues for Change
The Olga Lengyel Institute for Holocaust Studies and Human Rights
Cultivating Social Responsibility: Lessons from the Holocaust and the Rich Soil of the California’s Central Valley will focus on the social role of resistance in its many forms. Educators will leave the seminar with resources to develop curriculum around the Holocaust and to extend that learning to issues that directly affect the lives of their students. By connecting past to present, knowledge gained from Holocaust studies will lead participants to consider how Japanese Internment, the Armenian Genocide, and the Farmworkers’ movement continue to impact life in central California. Our goal is for students to recognize discrimination’s common threads, including policy that serves to limit or even paralyze the “other.”

Throughout the week, reading and writing activities will allow participants, and later their students, to process information gained from local speakers as we strive to minimize the distance between the concepts of “us” and the “other.” As educators gain tools to help their students recognize discrimination and effect change, education becomes a form of resistance when needed, and an act of advocacy, always.

C3 Teachers Summer InstituteC3 TeachersSponsored by C3 Teachers and National Council for the Social Studies, the IDM Summer Institute is back! This is our 8th year helping teachers learn about inquiry-based teaching and learning in general and the Inquiry Design Model (IDM) and designing inquiries in particular. The institute will be conducted online this year. And, we are sure it will be an experience worth your time!

After another challenging year, we are reminded of the power of inquiry. The pandemic continued, as did the struggle for racial justice, and this year we faced challenges to democracy at home and abroad. With all of this political and social uncertainty—we are all asking questions about our history, how we can make sense of our world today, and who we want to be going forward. Our students need the tools of inquiry, and they need us to help them build the competence and confidence to ask and answer the questions now before us.

We have worked with thousands of teachers and have published hundreds of inquiries online. With more and more states adopting new standards featuring the C3 Framework and inquiry, the need for designing inquiry learning experiences in social studies is greater than ever. In addition to an opportunity to learn about and use the Inquiry Design Model, we will explore the who, what, why, and how of inquiry-based instruction through our Making Inquiry Possible project, featuring teachers working together to build an inquiry culture. For all this and more, join our C3 Teachers community online in July at the 2022 IDM Institute! 11-12, 2022

How did the American Revolution provide opportunities and challenges as they sought freedom and/or better opportunities in life? How did their needs and wants align with those of Loyalists, Revolutionaries, and the many people in between? How did they practice agency in the midst of the chaos of war?
