Reimagine Educating: American Civics and History Academies for Better Learning and Engagement.
Who can apply:
Any teacher in the greater Fresno County area who teaches American History is eligible to apply. In the event that we receive too many applications, priority spots will go to Fresno Unified School teachers and to 11th and 12th grade history and civics teachers. However, all teachers who teach (or may teach) American history content are encouraged to apply. All teachers who apply must nominate 2-5 students for the congressional academies, as those students will be selected from a teacher created pool. Priority will be given to teachers serving high-need students and students from underserved populations to help ensure that these students have access to high-quality, interactive instruction that will help them become college- and career-ready and be better prepared to participate fully in civic activities.
