Summer Teacher Institutes

Since 2007 CLACS, together with UW-Whitewater and UW-Madison, has offered a 3-day summer institute, drawing a wide community of teachers from different subject areas and teaching levels. Over the last ten years, approximately 150 teachers have participated in the institutes—primarily from Wisconsin but also from nine other states.
