There’s a great new resource to help you in your studies of the US Constitution: The Heritage Guide to The Constitution is an interactive, phrase-by-phrase guide. You can click on a phrase in the Constitution and a window with the explanation, history, and suggestions for other resources to study the phrase slides out. There’s also a downloadable lesson for each section – I checked one out and it was really extensive!
Here’s more about it from an email I received:
From the Preamble to the 27th amendment, Heritage’s Guide to the Constitution is a comprehensive and authoritative analysis of every single clause in the Constitution — and it’s available for free at ConstitutionOnline.com. Here are some features in this great resource:
It’s comprehensive. Heritage brought together 100 of the nation’s best legal experts to create the only clause-by-clause examination of the Constitution and how it’s been interpreted over the years.
It’s searchable. You won’t need Google to search the Constitution anymore. Search the entire document and hundreds of essays by the nation’s leading legal experts on the historical context, meaning, and judicial interpretation of each clause.
It’s user-friendly. ConstitutionOnline.com was designed with your mobile device in mind. Whether you’re using Android, iPhone, a tablet, or iPad, ConstitutionOnline.com works beautifully on them all. We’ve made it simple to post on Facebook or tweet your favorite clause, as well.
It’s teachable. You don’t need to go to law school to learn the Constitution. Teach yourself the Constitution with the teaching companion to the guide. The teaching companion covers every clause in the Constitution, summarizes each essay in the guide, and includes exercises and quizzes to facilitate understanding of the Constitution’s main concepts. It is a great resource for homeschooling families or high school students working on reports and debates.
