Over the past several weeks, the students have learned the framers of the Constitution wrote it in response to the weak Articles of Confederation but did it in such a way as to not make the national government too powerful. In partners the students examined the members and key powers for each branch of the government. We will be continuing our study of the US Constitution this week with the Bill of Rights.
All classes have had a second visit from Lawyers in the Classroom and are looking forward to one more visit before the end of the year.
Hello Bell School! My educational background includes a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from Saint Mary's College in Indiana, a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction, and National Board Certification as a Middle Childhood Generalist. My love for social studies was instilled in me by my dad who loves to talk about history. My parents always included historical sites on our family vacations.
