I’m pleased to say that the Bill of Rights Institute has put together Documents of Freedom, a free digital civics course with material on American history, government, and economics. The course builds on excerpts from over 100 primary sources, including the Federalist and Anti-Federalist papers, presidential speeches, Supreme Court cases, and the Founding documents; and it offers an extensive set of original essays, focusing on principles such as federalism, separation of powers, limited government, checks and balances, republican government, consent of the governed, natural rights, rule of law, and due process, as well as virtues like self-governance, humility, integrity, justice, perseverance, respect, contribution, and responsibility. Of course, the materials can also be used as a free supplement to normal textbooks, and are usable for home-schooling as well as for the classroom.
The Institute would love to have teachers independently evaluate the site, and offer suggestions on how it can be improved; because it’s online, it can always be enhanced and corrected as necessary. If you’re interested in participating, please e-mail Kirk Higgins at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Disclosure: I was happy to be a consultant on the course, for which I received an honorarium; an introductory essay of mine will be included in the materials, though it isn’t up yet.
TEA...Taxed Enough Already! We are a non-partisan group of concerned citizens, based in the Huntley area, part of a national network of Americans dedicated to core principles of fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and free markets. We support policies that lead to balanced budgets, smaller government, job creation in the private sector and a reduction of national debt to relieve the burden of the next generation.
We serve the communities of Huntley, Algonquin, Crystal Lake, Hampshire, LITH, and Woodstock. Our driving conviction:
It is important to change....otherwise, we will get where we are going!
As a coalition of citizens, we are committed to advocating and promoting policies at federal, state and local levels consistent with our core principles. It's all about policies, not politics. Members may support candidates who agree with policies consistent with core principles. If you are a concerned citizen, and share our core principles, join us!
