Living News Book Your Group Today! National Constitution Center

Living News is a play that dramatizes current Constitutional issues. The piece modernizes the Constitution, focusing on the controversial issues we face today through the stories of ordinary people. The play introduces a variety of constitutional issues and questions, and encourages students to think about where they stand on these issues.

We know it is often challenging for young people to make a personal connection to the Constitution and its relevancy in their lives. That's why we created the play and that's what we’ve concentrated on in creating all the activities that surround it. Below is a link to download the most current classroom toolkit with activities for your students to use before seeing the performance, after seeing the performance and for future lessons with current constitutional issues.
