The National Constitution Center brings innovative teaching tools to your classroom. Our unique approach to constitutional education emphasizes historic storytelling, constitutional rather than political questions, and the habits of civil dialogue and reflection.
The National Constitution Center’s framework for learning integrates three main components: Historical Foundations through Storytelling; Constitutional Interpretation Skills; and Civil Dialogue and Reflection. This approach provides a strong foundation in the Founding stories and judicial interpretations of the Constitution; teaches learners of all ages to separate their political views from their constitutional views—asking not what the government should do, but what it constitutionally may do; and teaches students to think like constitutional scholars by providing nonpartisan information about the Constitution, educational resources, and platforms to support civil discourse within classrooms and across the country.
Practice civil dialogue in the classroom with tools to engage students in healthy, respectful conversation about the constitutional questions that matter to them.Learn More
