Institute Programs for Teachers
The beliefs of young Americans are constantly influenced, – by reality television, social media, peers, parents, and teachers – including their beliefs about our Founding principles. Teachers play an imperative role in how young Americans envision essential freedoms in our Constitution and Bill of Rights.
How students envision those essential freedoms will influence significant milestones, including voting in a presidential election. How many students voted this past election with a significant understanding of our Founding principles? Not enough.
Here at the Bill of Rights Institute, we work to ensure teachers have the tools and resources necessary to influence their students with the words and vision of our Founders. We provide teachers resources and opportunities to gain a deeper understanding of our Founding principles. After attending Founders Fellowship, a program dedicated to promoting the intersection between civil and economic liberties, Chris Belch, a government and economics teacher from Canton, Michigan, remarked on his experience:
“I am excited to share with my students the importance of competition and property rights, and how they help shape and protect our civil liberties.”
