National Constitution Center Announces the Creation of Its New Interactive Constitution: Classroom Edition

The National Constitution Center, the leading nonprofit platform for constitutional education and debate, announced the creation of its new Interactive Constitution: Classroom Edition, which is set to be released on Constitution Day, September 17, 2019. This cutting-edge, multi-media digital platform will provide trusted, nonpartisan constitutional resources for middle school and high school students and educators.

The Classroom Edition will include educational videos; constitutional lesson plans; virtual exchanges that link classrooms across the country for moderated constitutional discussions; and other multimedia teaching resources that build on the success of the Interactive Constitution.

The Charles Koch Foundation is pleased to join a broad array of funders including the Hewlett Foundation, Stanton Foundation, and College Board in providing support to make the new resource possible.

National Constitution President and CEO Jeffrey Rosen noted, “because of this generous support, the Interactive Constitution: Classroom Edition will connect students and classrooms across the country, using our virtual Classroom Exchanges for moderated constitutional conversations, in ways that will measurably improve constitutional understanding and civil dialogue in all fifty states of the Union.”
