Summer Civics Seminar


The Cincinnatus Center at Coastal Carolina University will host a week-long summer seminar on the American Political Tradition in June of 2022. This seminar is geared toward middle- and high-school teachers in Horry and surrounding counties, in order to offer content-based professional development to equip teachers with the history and pedagogy to lead students in the study of America’s founding documents. This training will assist teachers in the fulfilment of new pedagogical requirements in the recently-passed REACH act. The seminar will be conducted on the campus of Coastal Carolina University.


  • 20 contact hours (4 hours/day for 5 days) with Coastal Carolina University Professors exploring the political thought of the Founding and its continuing legacy

  • Complimentary breakfast and lunch each day

  • Bound volume of primary source documents

  • $200.00 stipend + mileage to CCU (max $100)

Schedule and Format

Each day will include four hour-long sessions, including lecture, discussion, and Q&A in a group setting. We will provide breaks with refreshments between each session and will also provide breakfast and lunch each day. The seminar will run from 9:00 to 2:30 each day. All readings will be provided in a bound volume in advance.
