James Madison and Constitutional Citizenship

Two one-week workshops for eighty school teachers on James Madison's role in the creation and implementation of the U.S. Constitution, held at Montpelier, Madison's home.

The Montpelier Foundation seeks funding to conduct two five and one-half day "Landmarks of American History and Culture: Workshops for School Teacher" seminars that will occur in the summer of 2010 at James Madison's Montpelier. The Workshop - James Madison and Constitutional Citizenship - will combine advanced scholarship on Madison and the Constitution, paired with an examination of James Madison's Montpelier as one of the central sites in the creation of the U.S. Constitution. Montpelier's Center for the Constitution has hosted highly acclaimed versions of this proposed Landmark Workshop in 2005, 2006, and 2008.
