    We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution Training

    We the People

    Columbia

    The primary goal of We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution is to promote civic competence and responsibility among the nation’s elementary and secondary students. What makes the program so successful is the design of its instructional program, including its innovative culminating activity – a simulated congressional hearing that has students “testify” before a panel of judges. Students demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of constitutional principles and have opportunities to evaluate, take and defend positions on relevant historical and contemporary issues. This is performance assessment in action! Middle and high school teams compete at regional competitions and may advance to a state competition. The state winner at the high school level advances to a national competition held in the spring in Washington, DC. The We the People textbooks are designed for a wide range of student abilities and may be used as a supplemental text or for a full semester of study. Critical thinking exercises, problem-solving activities and cooperative learning techniques help develop intellectual and participatory skills while increasing students’ understanding of the institutions of American constitutional democracy. At the same time, students discover the contemporary relevance of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. A FREE one-day training is provided. The curriculum is correlated to South Carolina social studies and English language arts standards.
