LEARNING EXPERIENCE September 19/20 – THE CONSTITUTION!

screen-shot-2016-09-18-at-7-58-00-pmIt’s a lucky time in your lives, young historians – you get to read and analyze the original US Constitution!  You will have a detailed study guide that will take you though the seven articles of the fabled document, and a separate assignment for the Bill of Rights – FUN!

How will we begin?  By starting to throw some darts at two learning targets – I can outline the basic structure of the Constitution and I can apply the goals of the Preamble to our current society.  Using your Structure and Preamble document DOC,  check out the basics of the Constitution in class and recording some simple notes. This should give you a great overview of the document … and it’s pretty easy! Note the cool Constitutional quotes along the side of the notes – great stuff!  Pick your favorite!

Then, it’s time to dive into the Preamble of the Constitution.  These goals set the stage for the United States government, and also make a fun little Schoolhouse Rock jingle. Start the Preamble assignment – you may not get examples for all of the goals of the Preamble just yet.

Some Preamble fun?  Here you go …

For my favorite English teacher next door …
