Middle and high school teachers from across the state are getting political at the University of Virginia. The UVA Center for Politics hosted its first teacher workshop Tuesday, with the goal of helping improve civics education.

A group of about 40 teachers discussed everything from special interests to lobbying.

UVA Center for Politics' Director of Instruction Meg Heubeck wants to make politics more accessible to teachers and students.

"We try to provide hands-on, first-person experiences with politics so that people know politics is a good thing," said Heubeck.  

Teachers talked one-on-one with state lawmakers, lobbyists, and others Tuesday. 

The event is part of the UVA Center for Politics' 15th Annual Virginia Political History Project.
