WE THE PEOPLE Constitution Program
“The tours have literally made DC a school without walls for me and my students.” — Liz Davis, Charles Hart Middle School, 2008
“My secondary social studies department chairs and I all agree that this is a fantastic program that all DCPS 8th graders should experience . . . I also want to thank you for the Teacher Guide, which allows teachers to teach pre trip and post trip activities that align with our 8th grade standards with regards to the teaching of the Constitution.” — Jesse Nickelson, Director of Social Studies, D.C. Public Schools, 2008
The We the People Constitution Program is a unique learning experience using “monumental” Washington to help 8th grade students understand the U.S. Constitution.
The We the People Consortium includes the U.S. Capitol Historical Society, the National Archives, the White House Historical Association, the Federal Courts, Children’s Concierge, Old Town Trolley Tours, and Sodexo.
