New Resources Coming in 2024!

In 2024, the Bill of Rights Institute will be releasing two new digital resources! In late Spring, we will release 10 inquiry-based lessons that support U.S. History instruction for 3-5th grade educators. In late fall we will release the first lessons for our digital Government and Politics textbook. The textbook will be fully available to use in advance of the 2025-26 school year.
