Teaching the U.S. Constitution (2022)

On October 4 and 5, 2022, Humanities Texas held one-day workshops in Fort Worth and Dallas on teaching the U.S. Constitution.


Topics addressed included the Articles of Confederation, compromises made in adopting the Constitution, the Federalist and Anti-Federalist debates on the Constitution's ratification, and the Bill of Rights.

The workshops featured close interaction with scholars, the examination of primary sources, and the development of effective pedagogical strategies and engaging assignments and activities.


Workshop faculty included Denver Brunsman (George Washington University), Lorri Glover (St. Louis University), and Joseph F. Kobylka (Southern Methodist University).
