About We the People

The We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution program promotes civic competence and responsibility among the nation’s upper elementary and secondary students.

We the People complements the regular school curriculum by providing elementary, middle, and high school students with an innovative course of instruction on the history and principles of U.S. constitutional democracy. Print textbooks, enhanced ebooks, interactive strategies, supplemental content, and simulated congressional hearings, all make the curriculum exciting for both teachers and students.

The program enjoys active support from state bar associations and foundations, as well as other educational, business, and community organizations across the nation. Since its inception in 1987 as the principal education program of the federal Constitution’s bicentennial, more than 30 million students and 75,000 educators have participated in We the People.

We the People is administered by the Center for Civic Education in partnership with a national network of state coordinators. The We the People website features a resource center and more information for teachers and students.

About We the People: The Citizen & Democracy

The elementary school years are the best time to help students gain a beginning understanding of the foundational ideas essential to preserving our free society.

The Center's elementary We the People: The Citizen & Democracy text for grades 3–5 can be used to increase their commitment to our nation's founding principles. Full color, and richly illustrated, the student book contains two units with 11 lessons.

Here's what your students will gain:

  • A profound understanding and reasoned commitment to the fundamental principles and values of the American democratic republic contained in the Declaration of Independence and Preamble to the Constitution of the United States.
  • A basic frame of reference for understanding democratic government and political life that will be enhanced by further learning as they progress through later grades.
  • An understanding of their rights and responsibilities.
  • Dedication to furthering the goal in the Pledge of Allegiance of our being a nation "with liberty and justice for all."

As with all levels of We the People, the textbook is supported by an online student resource center.
