MERIDIAN — Middle school teachers from the Meridian Public School District, including Linda Hopson, center, took part in the first session of the 4-C Summer Institute at MSU-Meridian. The 20-day institute was made possible through a $90,000 grant the division of Education received from the Institute of Higher Learning. The teachers learned new ways to encourage student learning in grades 6-8 that focuses on critical thinking and problem solving skills.
