James Madison Legacy Project
Professional Development Program
The James Madison Legacy project is a three-year nationwide initiative of the Center for Civic Education that focuses on identifying cost-effective means of providing widely available professional development programs useful in enhancing the knowledge and skills required of teachers to promote high-need and other students’ attainment of state standards in civics and government.
The project aims to
(1) increase the number of highly effective teachers of high-need students through the professional development of 2,025 teachers,
(2) increase the achievement of at least 202,500 students in attaining state standards in civics and government,
(3) serve the self-identified professional development needs of a minimum of more than 500 participating schools with significant concentrations of high-need students throughout the United States, and
(4) evaluate the relative effectiveness of the Center’s research-validated traditional We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution professional development model enhanced with online resources and a new blended-learning variation of the traditional model that also uses online resources.
