About this Grantee

To foster an understanding of how the U.S. Constitution relates to current events, Ms. Toft, Ms. Gray, and Ms. Hyman implement “The Constitution: A Living Document.” Collaborating with an attorney, the teachers guide students in analyzing primary sources and identifying Constitutional questions that emerge from current events. The project culminates with Constitution Day, when students share their projects with community members and peers.
