Hi all, what are your plans for this coming Constitution Day? Any exciting lessons/ideas?
EDSITEment from the National Endowment for the Humanities has a Constitution Day minsite which contains over 33 lesson and vetted websites to help you teach the history, structure and meaning of the Constitution.
To mark the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, the NEH is hosting a series of events on National Constitution Day, September 17th, 2012. The NEH has collaborated with University of Richmond President and Civil War historian Edward L. Ayers to create a number of opportunities - including an interactive discussion with leading emancipation historians and a creative student contest - which encourage high school and college students across the nation to consider the immediate and long-term implications of emancipation as it relates to the U.S. Constitution and their lives today. NEH has partnered with the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History to live stream the interactive discussion taking place at the Smithsonian's Warner Bros. Theater.
