Are you ready for it, teachers?
- My previous reminder; and last year’s
- Constitution Day website
- Bill of Rights Institute; 2008’s activities and lesson plans
- Howard Chandler Christy’s painting of the Convention in Philadelphia, as adapted by Dr. Gordon Lloyd (Pepperdine University) for the National Endowment for the Humanities, for interactive education. (Seriously: Click on the painting below, and go try out Dr. Lloyd’s device. Neat stuff.)
2008: I wasn’t ready to blog about it today. Texas requires one day of instruction on the Constitution in every social studies class. In government today, it happened to fit. We discussed the Constitution earlier in world history, and we will return to it at various points through the year.
