Program 2: Liberty and Security – July 21-24, 2014 – Philadelphia, PA

Quotes from Founders Fellowship participants:

I love Bill of Rights Institute materials! I gained exposure to some materials I have not used.  The pedagogy sessions are so helpful. I have a better understanding of the founders’ thinking/beliefs/ideas that influenced them when they had to form a government.

I cannot even begin to tell you the value of this week!  The strengths were the presenter’s definite connection to participants and knowledge of content. I’m so excited to start planning for next year.  Every social studies teacher should attend this program.
