In this fast-paced and fun civics video, Chief Learning Officer Kerry Sautner and Senior Fellow in Constitutional Content Nicholas Mosvick review America’s founding documents from a typical course of study for an AP Government class. This civics class helps students understand these essential documents better—including their fundamental ideas and the major principles underlying the U.S. Constitution. Primary sources include the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, the Constitution (including the Bill of Rights), The Federalist Papers (#51, #70, #78), Brutus #1, and Martin Luther King Jr.’s Letter from the Birmingham City Jail.
