BRADENTON -- A Manatee High School teacher was one of 25 throughout Florida who recently participated in the Justice Teaching Institute held annually at the Florida Supreme Court.
Sarah Boler teaches law studies and court procedures as part of the school's social studies department.
The Institute provides an opportunity for Florida teachers to explore the state courts and the administration of justice using a case study approach. Teachers begin the institute on opening night by participating in a simulated Supreme Court oral argument activity serving as attorneys and Justices.
"It was so wonderful and I learned so much about our judicial system and am excited to share it with my students," Boler said.
The training took place in Tallahassee in February. All graduating teachers received certificates signed by the Justices and were designated as Justice Teaching Institute Fellows.
