Description:  Everything we are and hope to be as Americans is rooted in our past. Our religious, political, social and economic development and freedoms become more precious to us as we study our heritage. The men who wrote our timeless Constitution, arguably the most profound political document ever produced, were acutely aware of what had gone before as they fashioned a document that would serve millions of Americans yet unborn. The power of our form of government comes from the fact that our fathers took the best of the past and built upon it. May we do likewise! Weekly readings, an interactive notebook, class discussion, quizzes, tests, and biography projects will be used to aid in the knowledge and appreciation of our amazing heritage.
