National Constitution Center

The National Constitution Center brings innovative teaching tools to your classroom. Our unique approach to constitutional education emphasizes historic storytelling, constitutional rather than political questions, and the habits of civil dialogue and reflection.

How We Teach the Constitution

The National Constitution Center’s framework for learning integrates three main components: Historical Foundations through Storytelling; Constitutional Interpretation Skills; and Civil Dialogue and Reflection. This approach provides a strong foundation in the Founding stories and judicial interpretations of the Constitution; teaches learners of all ages to separate their political views from their constitutional views—asking not what the government should do, but what it constitutionally may do.
