On Tuesday, 22 SEP 15, and the Center for Civic Education hosted a 72-minute webinar featuring Dr. Gordon Lloyd, who spoke about the historical and philosophical roots of the United States Constitution, and provided some ideas about how teachers can frame instruction about the document and the ideas set forth by it. You can watch the video archive below, and the the podcast is at the top of this post.

One of the questions asked at the end of this program was about which philosophers or schools of thought most shaped the Founders and their views on politics. Dr. Lloyd suggested George H. Nash’s Books and the Founding Fathers as a solid resource for learning about what the Founders read.

Once all six episodes are completed we will build a single archive page on for all program sessions and materials.
