Voting Rights, the Constitution, and Representative Government

EST  | Virtual
Civic Learning Week Opening Forum Events

Teachers and caregivers: register your middle school students for a special webinar presentation of Voting Rights, the Constitution, and Representative Government with the National Archives!

Using the Constitution, constitutional amendments, and legislation, students will explore the progression of voting rights in the United States and its impact on representative government. Additional primary source documents from the National Archives, including photographs and political cartoons, will enhance student understanding of the ways in which contemporary events and public civic engagement influence their lives today.

After registering, you will receive the Zoom connection information via email the week of the event. Participants’ cameras and microphones will be off and participant comments will be shared only with presenters to ensure a student-friendly environment. Registration will close 24 hours before each event.

Check out the teacher guide for optional pre- and post program activities.
