Two one-week Landmarks workshops for eighty school teachers on the historic formation and importance of the Declaration of Independence and the U. S. Constitution.

Philadelphia's National Constitution Center requests NEH funding for two one-week workshops, to be held in the summer of 2011. Titled "A Revolution in Government," each workshop will instruct participants in the history and significance of the Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution, making use of the very sites on which those documents were drafted. Participating educators will learn about key political figures behind the documents, including Benjamin Franklin, James Wilson, and Gouverneur Morris. The influence of Pennsylvania's state constitutional experiments on the ultimate shape and direction of the federal government will also be highlighted. Alongside field trips to Philadelphia's unique historic sites, the workshops will feature lectures by celebrated visiting faculty and open, collegial discussion with fellow participants. The workshops will offer an unparalleled opportunity for educators to revisit - or learn - Philadelphia's role in constitutional history.
