James Madison Legacy Project





The James Madison Legacy Project (JMLP) is made possible by a generous grant from the U.S. Department of Education through the Supporting Effective Educator Development program. It is a three-year nationwide initiative of the Center for Civic Education that aims to (1) increase the number of highly effective teachers of high-need students (2) increase the achievement of over 200,000 students in attaining state standards in civics and government, (3) serve the professional development needs of more than 500 schools and, (4) evaluate the effectiveness of the Center’s research-validated  We the People professional development model enhanced with online resources and a new blended-learning variation of the traditional model.

The project focuses on identifying cost-effective means of providing widely available professional development programs useful in enhancing the knowledge and skills required of teachers to promote high-need and other students' attainment of state standards in civics and government. Louisiana is proud to be an active participant in the James Madison Legacy Project.
