Constitution Day lessons are afoot.

August 4, 2019

Our affiliate has used lesson plans provided by MTA National, revised them for the Prescott area, and met with educators at the area's 4 high schools to explain the lesons and give them the materials we put together for them. 

Constitution Day is each September 17, and schools receiving federal funds (all public schools) must teach a lesson about the Constitution around that time each year.  Thus our efforts.  More about the lessons:

There are 2 lessons, "Corporate Personhood" and "People's Movements".  Each shows a timeline of constitutional amendments and U.S. Supreme Court decisions, printed on 8-1/2 x 11" card stock (both sides the same), which the students then hold and read in chronological order.  It's a lot of fun, and teaches how the amendment process has been used to carry out the will of The People, to address problems that could only be fixed using the amendment process.
