This Constitution: A Bicentennial Chronicle.
This Constitution, n2 Spr 1984
A series of articles focus on enduring Constitutional issues and methods for teaching about these in the classroom. Article 1 explores the nature of the judiciary as it has developed under the Constitution. Article 2, by discussing the uses of the Constitution in plays of the Federal Theater Project of the 1930's, examines the Constitution as a cultural document. Article 3 considers the evolution of the Constitution. A documents section highlights letters from early Supreme Court justices in order to evoke a sense of what life was like for justices during the Court's infancy. Article 4 provides classroom strategies for teaching about separation of powers and checks and balances. A final article focuses on some of the programs developed for the 1976 Bicentennial of American Independence. (LP)
