Past Events

NH Civics always have something going on! Check out our some of our past events.

Past Professional Development


Authentic Engagement: Community Connections in Legal Education

Kate Sintros presented on teaching racial justice in a predominantly white state like NH. She shared her practices of utilizing mock trial as well as Bryan Stevenson’s Just Mercy in her civics and law classes. Attorney Seth Aframe described how he has supported Kate’s instruction. 

Aaron Blais presented on how he teaches law using a project-based-learning approach incorporating the Innocence Project and a sentencing activity, You Be the Judge, with Judge Will Delker. He wants teachers to know that fruitful connections between the community and the classroom are plentiful and accessible no matter where you teach in NH, even or especially in the age of remote learning.
