Live Interactive Classes on the US Constitution

Teachers can bring constitutional conversations into their classroom with Scholar Exchanges from the National Constitution Center. Part lecture and part lively conversation, weekly 30- to 45-minute classes are accessible to the public so that students, teachers, and parents can join in a constitutional discussion with National Constitution Center scholars on core topics such as the branches of government, landmark court cases, civil rights, the First Amendment’s freedoms of speech and press, and the Fourth Amendment’s search and seizure.

Each week in 2022, three classes will be offered: Wednesdays at 12 p.m. Introductory Sessions – Seeking Understanding; Wednesdays at 2 p.m.: Advanced Sessions – Beyond the Basics; and Fridays at 1 p.m.: All-Ages Sessions with Distinguished Guest Scholars. Public 30-minute classes will take place on Zoom. They will also be streamed live on YouTube, recorded and captioned, and on the Constitution Center’s website.

During the week of January 3, students will explore the history of the Supreme Court and landmark Supreme Court cases from Marbury v. Madison (1803) to the Roberts Court. During the week of January 10, students will explore the 1950s and 1960s civil rights movement; the Warren Court; and landmark civil rights laws enacted by Congress—including the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965—and how they have been interpreted by the Supreme Court. Details related to these and future courses are posted on the Constitution Center’s website.
