Upcoming Events

Constitution Day

Celebrate Constitution Day during the week of September 18 - 22, 2017

"In honor of Constitution Day, all educational institutions receiving federal funding are required to hold an educational program pertaining to the U.S. Constitution; this year we are asking all schools around the country to join in a National reading of the Preamble called The Preamble Challenge!" From the Constitution Center web site.

This lesson is available at the Constitution Center's web site. Look under Lesson Plans for the Preamble Challenge.

The Delaware Law Related Education Center is also organizing a "Lawyer in the Classroom" activity for Delaware High Schools during the same week. The attorney will present the Preamble Challenge Lesson to a class and discuss their work. Please e-mail Pat Quann at delrecntr@aol.com if you are interested in participating. Please put Constitution Day in the subject line of your e-mail.
