Constitution In The Classroom

Join the American Constitution Society's longest-running, community-education project, Constitution in the Classroom. Our next initiative is coming up on Constitution Day, September 17. ACS's Constitution in the Classroom program provides an opportunity for lawyers to teach lessons based on the United States Constitution in elementary, middle, and high schools throughout the country. Participating is a great way to increase constitutional literacy in schools and excite young minds about the Constitution. ACS prepares age-specific, interactive lesson plans that cover current Constitutional issues. ACS also provides volunteers with pocket Constitutions to pass out to students. We ask volunteers to reach out to local schools in their community to find classrooms interested in having them present a 45-60 minute lesson on the Constitution on or around Constitution Day. Volunteers are welcome to teach in a single classroom or organize additional classrooms and volunteers. Many ACS Lawyer Chapters also host the program and we can connect you with a chapter to join their regularly organized efforts.
