We the People...The Citizen and the Constitution is a curriculum designed to help students understand the history and principles of our constitutional government. The program focuses on the U. S. Constitution and Bill of Rights and fosters civic responsibility among elementary, middle, and high school students.

The Summer Institute is a rigorous professional development program that brings teachers together to work with experienced mentors and scholars from a variety of disciplines. Participants attend lectures and interactive sessions on We the People teaching methods. They will also participate in a simulated congressional hearing modeled after the We the People culminating activity.

Up to 15 Arizona teachers who teach 4th-12th grade will be selected from public, private and charter schools to attend. In return for participation in the Summer Institute (valued at up to $1,000) we ask that teachers use We the People in their classroom and conduct a simulated congressional hearing with their students. The Foundation will also provide technical assistance and support throughout the year as teachers work towards full program implementation.
