International Exchange Program: CELD Partners
visit to Colorado, August 7-14, 2004
CELD welcomes educators from the Czech and Slovak Republics
August, CELD hosted teachers and coordinators from our Civitas partnership.
Representatives from Slovakia, Czech Republic, Oklahoma, and Michigan
joined Colorado teachers for a Project Citizen Institute. The exchange
program was designed to:
• Improve understanding of how citizens participate in making
public policy in our respective states and countries through a study
of parliamentary and representative democracy systems;
• Strengthen implementation of Project Citizen through professional
development across our partnership; and
Develop strategies for improving student civic knowledge, skills,
and dispositions through research and evaluation.
