We The People: The Citizen and the Constitution is a comprehensive instructional program to help students understand the history and principles of our constitutional government. The program focuses on the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights and fosters civic competence and responsibility among high school students.
The Center for Civic Education and Humanities North Dakota are offering a summer institute that provides rigorous training to educators as they work with constitutional scholars and mentor teachers. Participants attend lectures and sessions dedicated to teaching methods appropriate to the We The People curriculum. They also participate in a simulated congressional hearing modeled on the We The People culminating activity. Educators from across the state of North Dakota are eligible to participate based on their application. One or two graduate credits will be available. Participants will receive at no cost:
A mileage stipend
Lodging and meals
A selection of constitutional materials
A classroom set of textbooks or other materials for the classroom
