Need a Brush Up on the Constitution?

Current events this week may leave you and your middle grade students with more Constitutional questions than answers. Perhaps our entry on teaching with the 2018 Orbis Pictus Honor Book Fault Lines in the Constitution: The Framers, Their Fights, and the Flaws That Affect Us Today can help! In August of 2019, an updated version of the book was published. You can read about the additions to the book, including recent events from 2018-2019, in this blog entry written by co-authors Sanford Levinson and Cynthia Levinson.
