How well has the U.S. Constitution protected the individual rights of all Americans? Who has been left out and why? How has Constitutional protection evolved?

  • In this fully online training, participants will:
  • Investigate questions of justice and equality from the origins of the constitution to the present.
  • Work in groups to investigate a wealth of primary sources - featuring images, maps, oral histories, and documents from the Library of Congress - to develop powerful inquiry-based lessons to bring this crucial document to life. 
  • Draft, teach, and reflect with fellow teachers on what works and how to strengthen the lesson.
