Dr. Jeremy Neely of Missouri State University speaking about the return to
civility in Missouri after the bitter border hostilities during the Civil
War. (See below for more details on the program.) Institute participants will spend the next two days exploring ways
to integrate technology and civility into their social studies
curriculums. All expenses will be paid for participants thanks to

challenge of integrating content areas with discussions about civility and with
the appropriate and effective use of technology?
