Florida History Teachers Institute

Mission San Luis is proud to announce the Inaugural Florida History Teachers Institute. This two-day seminar is designed to provide primary and secondary educators with the knowledge and skills necessary to teach a more complete study of Florida history to their students.

The 2015 Florida History Teachers Institute will be held on July 14–15 and will focus on Florida history from pre-contact through the Reconstruction Era.

It will feature hour-long lectures by scholars from Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University, Florida State University, the University of North Florida, and Seminole State College. In addition to these lectures, educators will have time for discussion on how to implement the materials they have learned in their classrooms.

Leon County educators will receive TEC points for continuing education for attending.

The seminar will conclude with the Institute Banquet held on the evening of July 15 in the Mission Room. The cost for the optional banquet will be announced at a later date.
