We the People

We the People: The Citizen & the Constitution

Founded and designed by The Center for Civic Education, We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution  is an active learning curriculum designed to foster deeper understanding of the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights, and the institutions of government. The culminating activity is a simulated congressional hearing in which students testify before a panel, answering questions that demonstrate their knowledge and confidence.

Ways We the People might work for you and your students:

      • Inquiry-based constitutional curriculum for Upper Elementary – High School
      • Upper Elementary hearings and showcases
      • Middle School hearings and showcases
      • High School hearings and showcases
      • High School hearings competition
      • Teacher Professional Development workshops & trainings
