Welcome to our Constitution Club!
This student driven club will focus on the founding documents of our nation and community service! In this club, students will take a hands-on approach to learning about the principles of American democracy and civic engagement.
Throughout the semester, students will study the Constitution, Declaration of Independence, and Bill of Rights. Through close reading, group discussions, and individual reflection, students will explore the principles and values that underpin our democratic system.
In addition to studying the founding documents, students will plan and execute service learning projects to support our community. These projects will provide opportunities for students to engage with real-world issues and apply their learning in meaningful ways.
Students will also participate in the Freedoms Foundation Constitution Bowl, Essay, and Mock Article V competitions. These competitions will challenge students to apply their knowledge of the founding documents and civic engagement in creative and engaging ways. We will explore essay contests and activities based on our nation's founding documents.
This class meets 2-3 times per week, sometimes more if a competition is coming up. Students will have the opportunity to take a leadership role in planning and executing class activities, and to develop important skills in collaboration, communication, and critical thinking.
By the end of the academic year, students will have a deep understanding of the founding principles of American democracy, as well as the practical skills needed to engage in civic life and contribute to their community. They will also develop important leadership and teamwork skills that will serve them well in their future academic and professional pursuits.
Only students dedicated to the study of our nation’s founding documents should enroll.
