Overview
The primary goal of the We the People, the Citizen & the Constitution curriculum is to promote civic competence and responsibility among students. It is designed to teach students about the history and principles of constitutional democracy in the United States. At the same time, students discover the contemporary relevance of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Critical thinking exercises, problem solving activities, and cooperative learning techniques help develop intellectual and participatory skill while increasing the student's content level.
