Missouri Summer Teachers Academy


A residential conference held each June in Columbia, the Missouri Summer Teachers Academy provides high school social studies educators from all corners of the state with an all-expense-paid opportunity to develop new content knowledge in their primary subject fields by studying a theme from American political history alongside MU Professors of Law, History, Political Science, and Education, as well as invited scholars from around the region and nation. In year’s past, the Teachers Academy has explored the theme of “Majority Rule, Minority Rights” (2016), “The Legacy of the Bill of Rights” (2017), “Missouri History” (2018), and “Revolutions” (2019, recap coming soon). Dates for the fifth anniversary of the Teachers Academy will be released in December 2019/January 2020, as well as instructions for attending, but any teachers interested in participating should contact Academy Organizer Thomas Kane, KaneTC@missouri.edu.
