The United States Constitution is a new owners’ manual that was originally written as a textbook for young adults studying American history and social studies.

The U.S. Constitution: An Owner’s Manual  (Midgard Education Publishing, September 2019) is an innovative guide for readers of all ages trying to make sense of this critical but now highly divisive American symbol.

Chapters on the Magna Carta, The Declaration of Independence, other historical precedents, all seven articles of the Constitution itself and the amendments and key Supreme Court decisions are presented with embedded questions and exercises that involve and challenge readers.

A one-stop source book, The U.S. Constitution: An Owner’s Manual will help youngsters and adults fully understand the creation and operation of this foundational document that helped sculpt American democracy. It is presented in a clever and engaging way that will help engage and enlighten readers.

The Owners’ Manual is part of a revolutionary curriculum available to teachers and schools around the country that also includes diverse and UPDATED books on American, world history, and civil discourse. The complete package of six textbooks and supplemental teachers’ guides are offered through Midgard Education.
