Go be­hind the scenes of Ohio’s gov­ern­ment in Ohio’s state cap­i­tal where ed­u­ca­tors in­ter­act with the movers and shak­ers in the ex­ec­u­tive, ju­di­cial and leg­isla­tive branches of Ohio’s gov­ern­ment!

Oclreohiogovernmentinaction20170228 0728“I net­worked, learned a great deal, and left with solid ma­te­r­ial I can use. Quite the tri­fecta!” 

“[OGIA]def­i­nitely in­spired some new teach­ing strate­gies and fur­ther knowl­edge in the con­tent area.” 

“I was to­tally im­pressed with the con­fer­ence. I have raved about it all day with both my stu­dents and my col­leagues.” 

 “…a great time and very re­ward­ing pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment op­por­tu­nity…”

This an­nual work­shop gives teach­ers an in­sider’s view of state gov­ern­ment:  meet with Supreme Court jus­tices, state leg­is­la­tors, cit­i­zen groups and more; tour the award-win­ning Supreme Court Vis­i­tor Ed­u­ca­tion Cen­ter and the Ohio State­house;  ob­serve leg­isla­tive and court­room sim­u­la­tions; and more!


Practical classroom application
