Today is Constitution Day, which urges educators to respond to the federal mandate to teach the Constitution in their classrooms. There are a number of websites, like iCivics and the National Constitution Center, that are offering videos and games to help teachers meet this mandate in a way that engages their students.
We recommend that you check out this video lecture by David McCullough of the Constitutional Sources Project, made available at the ConSource website. In this 30 minute lecture recorded at the National Archives in Washington DC, McCullough describes how our Founding Fathers joined together “and in the midst of crisis… arrived at the words we live by.”
On behalf of Harlan Institute, Happy Constitution Day!
