Illinois Civics Instructional Coaches

In order to facilitate the implementation of legislation concerning a new middle school civics course requirement and sustain the support of the high school civics requirement, the McCormick Foundation has hired Civics Instructional Coaches to represent 10 designated areas throughout Illinois.

Civics Instructional Coaches will receive in-depth training both in-person and via webinars. Civics Instructional Coaches, in turn, will facilitate professional development for middle and high school civics/social studies teachers in their respective regions. Civics Coaches will also be responsible for ongoing engagement with Regional Offices of Education, teachers, schools, districts, and pre-service programs in their area via newsletters, social media engagement, workshops and conference presentations throughout the school year.
