There have been many tributes to the Constitution but the highest tribute of all is the willingness of a person to take the time to study it.

The Constitution is an exciting charter for human freedom that establishes nearly 300 vested rights as they apply to various segments of the American society. Many people do not know the nature of these rights or how too protect them. This is why many of those rights have been eroded or lost.

This book is designed to revive a better understanding of America's great Charter of Liberty by using one of the oldest teaching methods ever invented - asking questions. It was used so extensively by the famous Greek philosopher, Socrates, that it is often referred to as the "Socratic method of teaching" -teaching by asking questions. For over one hundred years this book was the method used to teach America's youth to know and understand their Constitution. In 1831, when Alexis de Tocqueville came to America, he was amazed at how conversant the young people were with their charter of freedom. The Catechism was the vehicle to that learning.

Great help

The set up for the questions then answers is a great learning tool. I enjoy the older style written word.

Very good title for product

It is a very concise way to learn the constitution while stimulating critical thinking in its application.

Elementary Catechism on the Constitution

I work for National Write Your Congressman and I give these books to our members who want to teach their younger children the basic principles of a Republic.
The fact that it is outdated I believe to be a plus. It is an 1828 publication so of course slavery still exists, women do not vote, there is no income tax and our senators are appointed by the state legislatures. What a wonderful way to have a dialogue with our children about how our country has addressed injustices, and also about why an income tax was forbidden by the founders and why they wanted senators to represent the states and congressman to represent the people. Great teaching moments!
