Missouri Summer Teachers Academy

STA Website Main


A joint project of the Missouri Humanities Council and the Kinder Institute on Constitutional Democracy based out of Columbia, MO, the Missouri Summer Teachers Academy (MSTA) is an annual, all-expense-paid three-day seminar that provides teachers from all corners of the state with an opportunity to study a theme from American political history alongside MU faculty members and other scholars from around the region. Recruitment for the next Teachers Academy, tentatively scheduled to explore the broad themes and intriguing nuances of Missouri history, will officially begin in November/December, but any interested parties should feel free to contact Academy Coordinator and Kinder Institute Communications Associate Thomas Kane (KaneTC@missouri.edu) for more details about attending.

In the meantime, a full recap of the 2016 Missouri Summer Teachers Academy, which looked at the theme of majority rule and minority rights, can be found here, and a recap of our most recent Academy, which tackled the origins and legacy of the Bill of Rights, can be found here.
