Christian Schools International and the Center for Public Justice in Washington, D.C. were recently notified by the Kuyers Institute for Christian Teaching and Learning that they have been awarded a $7,100 grant for a joint summer faith integration project. This grant will provide an opportunity for three high school civics teachers and a college professor to connect with public policy experts in order to advance the thoughtful integration of Christian perspective into civics education. CPJ will bring together many resources, ideas, and contacts to the table to assist schools in equipping students to “serve God, advance justice, and transform public life.”
The goal of this project is to produce a product that is helpful for Christian high school civics teachers to use in their classrooms. This product would be written and field-tested by the participating teachers in the academic year following the summer experience.
This two-week program will take place from June 11-22, 2007 in Annapolis, Maryland and Washington, D.C. and will be organized and hosted by the Center for Public Justice in collaboration with Christian Schools International.
Teachers selected for this program will have all expenses covered for the two weeks in Washington, D.C. and will each receive a $1000 stipend for completed curriculum work. This anticipated product could provide valuable thoughts and ideas related to increasing the integration of faith and learning for all high school civic teachers throughout the CSI network. This work would be housed in the CSI Member Community Center (a resource sharing bank) for dissemination throughout CSI as well as available via the Kuyers Institute website.
Applications will be received until May 1 and are available by clicking here. Awardees will be notified by May 5. For more information you can email me: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-800-635-8288.
