Civil and Civic Discourse in Argument Writing

This summer, Plymouth State University hosts an intensive summer institute for teachers in which they practice humanities skills: reading, listening, analysis and discussion.

With support from New Hampshire Humanities, five afternoon programs offered as part of the Institute are open to the public, including teachers who are not enrolled in the full Institute. Content includes civil and civic discourse, inclusive history, and issues of race and culture, especially as they pertain to education. All programs will be held from 1:30-4:00 pm on the PSU campus and are free and open to the public. For detailed event information about the following programs, click HERE.
