Citizenship in the 21st Century is the topic that will be considered in a Summer Teaching and Curriculum Development Workshop conducted by the Great Books Foundation at Chestnut Hill College, Philadelphia, PA. Dates: Sunday, June 27 - Wednesday, June 30, 2010. This is a residential workshop designed for college faculty interested in developing Socratic discussion programs and curricular units dealing with this vital issue. It is especially useful for faculty in the social sciences, particularly those involved in service learning programs. The workshop will consist of seminars facilitated by experienced Great Books Foundation staff members and will make use of selections from the Foundation's highly acclaimed classroom anthology "The Civically Engaged Reader." In addition, participants will learn the fundamentals of Shared Inquiry, the Great Books Foundation's method of Socratic questioning. Participants are strongly ncouraged to reside on campus, since a significant part of the learning experience will be in the conversations that carry over from the formal sessions.
