The Evolving Constitution

July 7-11, 2008



Workshop Facilitators:
In this workshop we will target constitutional themes that can be traced across the U.S. History curriculum. Some of the themes and topics will be early constitutional models (Iroquois Confederacy, Mayflower Compact, and the New York State Constitution), evolving forms of democracy at all levels (town meetings, school board elections, and Presidential primaries), the struggle to implement constitutional principles in the early national period and beyond, the debates and battles over the separation of powers within the federal government and between the federal and state governments, and the struggles of various groups of American citizens to have their constitutional rights recognized and enforced.
