NOTE TO PARENTS

This is a Practice Scholar Project which motivates students to study hard through inspiring mentors, positive peer pressure, incentive awards and a culminating activity. Students will need to read assigned books, write a theme and study the Constitution every week. They will also need to prepare and give a presentation in class 2 – 3 times.

HOW YOU CAN HELP YOUR STUDENT

You may choose to read and discuss the assigned books with your student. Each week
your student will be assigned a question to think and write about. You can discuss these questions with your student but allow them the freedom to write their own response. Your student will be re-writing the U.S. Constitution in their own words. You may want to share with them what the statements in the Constitution mean to you.
