The CCP, in partnership with the American Bar Association Division for Public Education, is excited to provide Constitute lesson plans to help bring the world’s constitutions into classrooms, Grades 5 and up, as a way to empower students as citizens.
The first four lessons engage students in exploring world constitutions, drafting a 28th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, digging deeper into a particular constitutional topic, and drafting a unique constitutional preamble. A fifth lesson plan uses Constitute as a research tool for International Baccalaureate (IB) Curriculum’s World History diploma paper on Evolution and Development of Democratic states.
