The Constitution is the supreme law of the land and the foundation for all federal law. Yet how do “We the People” judge whether our representatives in Congress are being true to the Constitution and worthy of re-election unless we know what it says and means? The privilege of voting carries with it a responsibility to do so intelligently and thoughtfully.
The principles of government imbedded in the Constitution are timeless, and will work to provide a stable government “for posterity” if we leave them in place to work as they were designed. But what are those principles? And how can we know they are retained if we are ignorant of them?
This 10-lesson, 8-hour video course covers the U.S. Constitution, the history leading to it, and the changes in interpretation that have resulted from 200+ years of Supreme Court opinions. You will learn how and why to study the Constitution, the Founders view of law and government, how the Declaration of Independence relates to the Constitution and why the Articles of Confederation were so deficient that a new Constitution was required to preserve the fragile union.
The course includes a FREE downloadable 150-page student workbook, seminar slides and access to numerous supplemental documents. Know Your Constitution lecture series is perfect for self-study, homeschooling, or study groups.

Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual – or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country.Samuel Adams
