Three Branches Institute for Educators

Three Branches Institute Self-Paced Program

The Three Branches Institute is a self-paced virtual professional development program for educators. This professional development opportunity examines the people, events, and processes that shape the three branches of government in the United States.

The first two units address the legislative and executive branches. Unit 3: The Judicial Branch examines the Supreme Court’s decision in New York Times Co. v. Sullivan, the decision’s impact, and applications for the classroom.

The program will be open from July 15 through September 15. Registered participants will receive an email with additional information. Educators who successfully complete the program will receive a certificate for professional development hours.

The Three Branches Institute is hosted jointly by the White House Historical Association, United States Capitol Historical Society, Supreme Court Historical Society, and the National Archives and Records Administration.
