The Bill of Rights Institute (BRI) is helping teachers plan for the upcoming academic year with free, engaging resources and programs. On July 6, in partnership with Rice University’s Open Stax, BRI will launch Life, Liberty & the Pursuit of Happiness, an open educational resource for high school US history. With contributions from nearly 100 scholars, this resource invites students to investigate the central themes and ideas of American history. The entire resource will be hosted on OpenStax’s Tutor platform, which allows for adaptive learning at no cost to a district. Educators can request preview access, which will let them review the content and assessment questions, and experiment with course planning tools. A preview account will allow teachers to view the course from their students’ perspective and will automatically give them full access when the resource is released on July 6, 2020.
