This course material is only available in the iTunes U app on iPhone or iPad.

Course Description

September 17 is designated as Constitution Day to commemorate the signing of the United States Constitution in Philadelphia on September 17, 1787.

In this course, we have compiled a Multi-Touch book for iPad – Exploring the United States Constitution - as well as blog posts, online articles, videos, documents, and activities in the DocsTeach App for iPad.

You will learn about the Constitutional Convention, drafting and ratifying the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the three branches of our Federal government, and how the National Archives is preserving our Constitution. While exploring the legislative, executive, and judicial branches, you will touch on topics including: the Census, Senators' pay, patents, the school lunch program, voting rights, child labor, the Electoral College system, declaration of war, Japanese-American internment, the Watergate investigation, school integration, violence toward civil rights activists, religion and the presidency, court packing, military tribunals, the right to a fair trial, unreasonable searches and seizures, "separate but equal" laws, free speech during wartime, and religion in schools.
