This is one of the single greatest collections of teaching about our country’s founding ever put together. The University of Oklahoma is becoming a national leader in making civic education an integral part of the college experience through the Institute for the American Constitutional Heritage (iach.ou.edu). Through this 5-lecture series and discussion panel, leading American historians offer insights on Thomas Jefferson’s Founding, George Washington’s Gift, What Made the Founders Different, How Women Shaped the Founding and Our Jacksonian Constitution. A solid understanding of our country’s constitutional foundations has never been more important.

I attend this incredible series of lectures at OU earlier this year and was extremely impressed. All the lectures were wonderful but I would highly recommend viewing the lecture on Jefferson and the Founding, it was both enlightening and entertaining.
