My son is very excited to use Constitutional Literacy this year!
You can get a really close look by downloading the workbook and teacher’s guide – 1st edition (for free) here!

My son is going into 11th grade this year. For his ninth grade year we did a Government course with him and he loved it. He just loves History! This year he is dual enrolling in our local community college where he will be taking an American History class for college and highschool credit. He did not need to take another history credit this year.

Earlier this summer, he walked by while I was on the computer and I was watching a trailer for the Constitutional Literacy course by Michael Farris, chairman of HSLDA. Doing what every nosy teen oes, my son stopped to look over my shoulder at what I was watching. “MOM! What is that? Start the video over!” he replied excitedly! (Yes, my son is a history buff and political nerd.)

This is the trailer we watched together:


After watching the trailer, we were sold! “MOM! I want to take that this year. Can I please take this course for school?” My son was actually begging me to do school! This was amazing! We already had a history course picked out and scheduled for him this year, but this is the class that he wanted to take. He watches the news and reads the paper. He is fed up with our government and things that are taking place. Praise God he recognizes the trouble we are headed into if things don’t drastically change. He wants to learn and study the truth. How could I say no to that?

Enter to win this set here! We will also give you 2 free downloads: Student workbook & Teacher’s Guide for the 1st Edition, so you can get a good feel for what your student would learn with this course.

Description from the website:
For years, Americans have remained silent as our government encroaches on our freedoms. Join Michael Farris, founder and chancellor of Patrick Henry College and Chairman of the Homeschool Legal Defense Association as he delves into the history of our nation’s most important document and provides the training to turn America back towards a proper understanding of American Liberty.

This year I am happy to say we are using Constitutional Literacy with my son for the 11th grade. He will be watching the 25 videos and doing the workbook throughout the week. He already has plenty of highschool history credits, so we will be counting this one as an elective. I am proud of his decision and excited to learn right along with him this year.
