Participants in this online workshop will study the history of the Bill of Rights by analyzing primary sources. Discussions will focus on how the Bill of Rights was developed into a charter of liberty, and the participants will consider the best ways to incorporate the study of the Bill of Rights in a civic education curriculum. Educators will also discover how to connect their students with the National Archives through Civics for All of US distance learning programs.
This program is a part of Civics for All of US, the national civic education initiative from the National Archives. Our interactive teacher workshops draw upon the vast holdings of the National Archives to promote the knowledge, skills, and dispositions students need for civic engagement in the 21st century. Each program is led by one of our educators located at National Archives sites, the Center for Legislative Archives, and Presidential Libraries across the country.
