Publisher Description:

The Constitution is the foundation of the American system of government, and this workbook presents it as such. This course begins by exploring the historical background of the Constitution. It then examines the Constitution in detail; and, finally, it addresses the fundamental principles of the Constitution. Substantial references to historical documents and Supreme Court decisions are included within this full-color text.

(Note: This text is an updated, full-color version of The Story of the Constitution, second edition.)

Changing its name to emphasize the fact that the U. S. Constitution is the underlying support for all of our freedoms, Christian Liberty has re-published its excellent constitutional study which is based on two classics - The Story of the Constitution and The Story of a Great Document. There are three basic parts after the introduction - 1) historical background (the context in which the Constitution was formed), 2) detailed analysis of the original Constitution and amendments (with its original spelling, punctuation, and capitalization preserved), and 3) a broad evaluation of the Constitution (so we don't miss the forest by looking at the trees). Workbook chapters, with full-color illustrations, include a set of review exercises (a combination of multiple choice, true/false, short answer, and essay questions). The text is enjoyably readable and peppered with interesting sidebar information; the use of pen names by those who supported or did not support the ratification of the Constitution, as an example. Occasional timelines show the relationship between key constitutional events and continue from its beginnings to its recent past (President's Clinton's impeachment). The full text of the Constitution and its Amendments is included as an appendix along with an index and bibliography.

The Quiz and Test Packet provides both a testing schedule and consumable copies of accompanying quizzes and tests for the course. There is a quiz and a test for every one (or sometimes two) chapter(s) as well as a Final Exam which covers the last six chapters. Answers for both the quizzes and the tests are provided in the back. The "just-enough" Teacher Manual includes some general course observations and schedule. Information for each chapter includes a chapter summary, key points to emphasize, suggestions for additional student activities, and topics for extra reading as well as answers to the review questions. Workbook is 320 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

I wanted to help my teenagers (and myself) learn about the U. S. Constitution so that we would know and understand the law of our country.

I am looking forward to focusing on the constitution as American History. With our world gone mad, I want my children to know what the constitution says. I researched many options but this seems very thorough.

My son needs a civics course for his diploma program and I believe knowing the constitution is one of the most important things students should learn about being a good citizen.

The Rainbow Resource review gave me hope it might be just what I needed.

It is an updated version of Story of the Constitution book I used with younger kids. It is simple, straight forward and since I like to supplement with real books, videos, etc. it is not overwhelming for my special needs high schooler to do. As a lawyer, I like its focus on the Constitution and as a Christian, its reference to our Christian founding
