We are privileged to announce the ASK JOHN PROJECT sponsored by the Center or the Study of the American Constitution and the Center for Civic Education. The project is an eight-part video series that offers a unique opportunity for students and teachers to learn about the Founding Period and constitutional history from Professor John Kaminski. 

Since 1969 John Kaminski has edited The Documentary History of the Ratification of the Constitution. Twenty-nine volumes of this monumental work have been published to date. In 1981 he founded and still directs The Center for the Study of the American Constitution in the History Department at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. He has written dozens of articles and published another twenty-six books on the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the federal judiciary, slavery, and the Founding Fathers, including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Jay, James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, Abigail Adams, the Marquis de Lafayette, Thomas Paine, and others.

Though the actual questions presented on will vary from year to year, we feel the subject matter for each of the units will be relevant to teams, in some part, each year.

For your convenience, we will have also embedded each of the videos at http://lawforkids.org/ask-john/videos.
