Understanding the Constitution is essential to civic life, yet students often find this Charter difficult to read and comprehend. This session will introduce students to the Constitution by presenting educational resources that engage them in primary source-based exploration and discussion. The lesson, Teaching 6 Big Ideas in the Constitution enables students to decode the Charter in several ways including making a visual map of its articles. A second lesson, Constitutional Scavenger Hunt,includes techniques for using political cartoons to reveal major concepts in the Constitution.
