Oakland Circuit Judge Workshops ‘Patriot Week’

Oakland Circuit Judge Michael Warren Presents to K-12 Educators at Professional Development Workshop

Oakland County Circuit Court Judge Michael Warren recently presented to Kindergarten through 12th grade educators at Clarenceville High School in Livonia. Convened by Learning to Give, Judge Warren and three panelists from other non-profits presented different approaches that citizens can take to be more involved with the non-profit community. Judge Warren explained steps that teachers and their students can make through Patriot Week to learn about our country’s Founding First Principles and America’s history. He pointed to resources available on Patriot Week’s website to assist in teaching and volunteer opportunities, such as lesson plans, videos, classroom activities, and the ability to request guest speakers.

“Patriot Week is a wonderful teachable moment,” Judge Warren enthusiastically explained, “It enables students to embrace our historical commitment to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness by analyzing the Founders, First Principles, and key historical documents.” The Judge continued, “Unlike any other nation in history, America has been founded on First Principles that are to guide us. We can teach students to renew America by celebrating and honoring those First Principles for which so many have sacrificed.”

Patriot Week, co-founded in 2009 by Judge Warren and his daughter Leah, is a grassroots effort that seeks to renew the spirit of America and reinvigorate the idea of civic duty. Patriot Week is held from September 11 to September 17 every year across the nation. The two anchor dates represent historical events that have had a monumental impact on America, the September 11 being the day of the terrorist attacks and September 17 that is the anniversary of signing the Constitution.
