The Constitutional Rights Foundation (CRF) is a non-profit organization trying to help young people understand "the importance of civic participation in a democratic society." CRF offers a variety of programs and teaching materials to help students see the forces that shape our laws and government and that encourage active citizenship.

If you are teaching American history, you may find these lessons helpful:

The lessons explore several documents that serve as the foundation for American democracy. Each lesson includes a reading with discussion questions and a link to the complete text of the document.
CRF offers several other free lessons online, and you may also find the Library of Congress site useful:
Library of Congress > Primary Documents in American History
