We the People
Center for the Constitution
"We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution" is a nationally acclaimed government and civics curriculum that helps students understand the history and principles of our Constitution and Bill of Rights. The program is available to elementary, middle, and high school students and teachers from public and private schools anywhere in the United States.
Benefit of the We the People Curriculum:
Teachers interested in the We the People material are eligible to attend free professional development seminars, where they will learn about implementing We the People and the Simulated Congressional Hearing in the classroom. The Simulated Congressional Hearing serves as an authentic assessment tool used with the We the People curriculum. We the People is administered nationally by the Center for Civic Education and the Center for the Constitution at James Madison's Montpelier is proud to be the host of the program in Virginia and Washington, DC.
