Framing America’s Constitution
14 August 2015.Friday, 8:00AM - 3:00PM
Co-Sponsored by the Ashbrook Center at Ashland University
Gordon Lloyd, Ashbrook Center Senior Fellow and Emeritus Professor at Pepperdine University
Join us for this free one-day program for teachers, co-sponsored by TeachingAmericanHistory.org and the Massachusetts Historical Society, with assistance from the Lincoln and Therese Filene Foundation.
Thanks to more than fifty years of research and teaching, Dr. Gordon Lloyd has distilled his knowledge into an interactive, dynamic online exhibition on the Constitutional Convention, designed for teachers to use in their classroom. Dr. Lloyd will lead participants through the documents and ideas at the core of the Constitutional Convention, exploring the event as a ‘Four Act Drama,' and inviting teachers to study the Founding through primary documents. Teachers will deepen their understanding of the Founding while becoming familiar with clusters of documents ready to use in their classrooms.
Participating teachers will receive lunch, refreshments, along with reading materials. Each participant will also receive copies of both "50 Core American Documents" and Dr. Lloyd’s recent publication "James Madison’s Debates in the Federal Convention of 1787."
