Teaching Tools for Celebrating a Historic Moment in Our Nation’s History

September 17 is Constitution Day, commemorating the day in 1787 when, at the end of a long, hot summer of discussion, debate, and deliberation, the delegates to the Constitutional Convention signed America’s most important document. This special day encourages students and teachers to learn about the importance of the Constitution in helping us establish our common civic heritage. The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) has created a teachers guide for K–12 educators filled with videos, games, and interactive modules that are perfect for commemorating Constitution Day. The resources will spur students to consider these guiding questions: Who is included in the phrase “We the People”? How do we form “a more perfect union”? What makes the US Constitution a living document? To what extent does the Constitution influence people’s lives on a daily basis? The resources are also available in Spanish.
