Also available in book form!
The Heritage Guide to the Constitution is one-of-a-kind book that presents the U.S. Constitution as never before.
A landmark work of more than one hundred scholars, The Heritage Guide to the Constitution is a unique line-by-line analysis explaining every clause of America’s founding charter and its contemporary meaning.
In this fully revised second edition, leading scholars in law, history, and public policy offer more than two hundred updated and incisive essays on every clause of the Constitution.
From the stirring words of the Preamble to the Twenty-seventh Amendment, you will gain new insights into the ideas that made America, important debates that continue from our Founding, and the Constitution’s true meaning for our nation.
Note to Homeschoolers:
The Heritage Guide to the Constitution’s Digital Edition includes a Teacher’s Companion and Student Worksheets! These are designed for students at the high-school level and above. The Heritage Foundation’s Teaching Edition can be the basis of a complete class on the Constitution, a supplement to a course, or an additional teaching or learning source for any course of study that deals with the Constitution. Students can learn about the Constitution by focusing on the branches of government, the seven Articles, or various topics such as voting, the House of Representatives, or federalism.
If you choose to drop some of the parts of the lessons, then this curriculum can be used as an intensive one-semester course. If you choose to cover all of the readings and writing assignments, this curriculum would take at least 20 weeks to complete. This curriculum could fill a full school year, especially in conjunction with other materials, such as We Still Hold These Truths: Rediscovering Our Principles, Reclaiming Our Future. Whether used for self-paced learning or in a class on American government, civics, or constitutional law, a study of the U.S. Constitution should be part of every student’s social studies curriculum.
(For younger students, we recommend Our Constitution Rocks!)
