The We the People program curriculum includes the textbook, a resource center, supplemental lesson plans and other
Center for Civic Education resources. The curriculum provides upper elementary, middle, and high school students
with a course of instruction on the history and principles of the United States constitutional democracy. Critical thinking
exercises, problem-solving activities, and cooperative-learning opportunities help develop intellectual and participatory
skills while increasing students’ understanding of government institutions and fostering attitudes that students need to
participate as effective, responsible citizens.
