Future Classes: 

Constitution 101 - Basic Principles of Freedom

After many years of careful study, deliberation, debate, and compromise by those whom we respectfully esteem as our "founding fathers", there came forth the fruit we now know as the Constitution of the United States of America.  Most Americans profess support and love for this document, but do they even know what is says?  If they do know what it says, do they understand what it means?  This course is designed to give citizens a basic understanding of the principles contained in our founding documents.  We will discover and discuss these principles as we study the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution together. 

 

Materials: A Guide for Learning and Teaching the Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution by Joseph Andrews.  Optional: The Making of America by Cleon Skousen

 

Meeting: Probably weekly for 8 weeks.

 

Constitution 201 -

Federalist & Anti-Federalist Papers


If the Constitution is the fruit, then what are the branches and trunk from which this fruit sprang?  Or, in other words, what were the arguments that supported the formation of this great document?  In this course we will study The Federalist Papers and  The Anti-Federalist Papers in order to more fully understand the true intent and meaning behind the various articles and sections contained within the Constitution. 


 

Materials: The Federalist Papers and The Anti-Federalist Papers

 

Meeting: TBA

 

Constitution 301 -

Founding Grandfathers

If the Constitution is the fruit, and the combined wisdom and knowledge of the founding fathers are the branches and trunk, what are the roots of this inspired document?  In this course we will study the "founding grandfathers" of the Constitution, or in other words, those whose wisdom and knowledge preceded our founding fathers and from whom our founding fathers gathered the data, knowledge, and information necessary to formulate the most dynamic and prosperous government form ever to be created and instituted by man on the earth.  In this course we will study the works of authors such as Montesquieu, Locke, Blackstone, Adam Smith, and even Moses, whose ideas of government and economics were so influential in the formation of our constitutional republic and free market system. 

 

Materials: TBA

 

Meeting: Probably monthly for 9 months.

 

Principles of Freedom Colloquium


This book discussion group will gather to discuss literature relating to the principles of freedom.  We will read and discuss such literature as the 5000 Year Leap by Skousen, The Proper Role of Government by Benson, The Law and That Which is Seen and That Which is Unseen by Bastiat, Democracy in America by de Tocqueville, and works by Thomas Paine.

 


Materials: TBA

 

Meeting: Probably twice per month for a few months.

 

Constitution KIDS!

Founding Fathers


We know the names and dates associated with our glorious U.S. history, but who really were the men and women behind the formation of this great nation under God?  In this colloquium group, we will delve into the lives and characters of our founding fathers (and mothers), by reading such books as The Real George Washington by Parry, Allison, and Skousen, The Real Thomas Jefferson by Allison, Maxfield, Cook, and Skousen, The Real Benjamin Franklin by Allison, Skousen, and Maxfield, and John Adams by McCullough.
