The Ultimate Civics Project, by the Center for Education Reform

Why America? is a program jam packed with interactive seminars with renowned Constitutional experts and authorities on civics, offered in eleven hour-long sessions.

 “You cannot love what you do not know.”

This quote from historian and author David McCullough is the unofficial motto of Why America?, a program designed to  inspire students and educators to want to learn more about their country, and in so doing, come to know, and love, America.  

Though imperfect,  the U.S. Constitution was designed to move America “toward a more perfect union”.  The U.S. has the longest continuous democracy in the world and other countries still base their constitutions on the U.S. Constitution.  Why?  Why America?

Perfect for the Social Studies Teacher or for those interested in American history, the Why America? Program is designed to help teachers convey and help students answer  the questions – WHY?

Why the Constitution? Why the First Amendment? Why the Presidency? Why Congress? 

Who did this? What does it mean? And how was it intended to all be used?

History is unfolding in front of students like never before and most, sadly, do not know enough about it to process the living lessons of their lifetime. Teachers who have the knowledge report they would prefer not to teach civics and history for fear of agitating students — or reprisals from constituents.

But some of us remember that one teacher who opened our minds and eyes to the power of history, and the brilliance of having knowledge. Conveying that knowledge and being able to access objective, credible sources of history is more difficult than ever during this unprecedented time.
