With lesson plans based on the scholarly works of the Interactive Constitution and classroom-tested materials on civil dialogue, the National Constitution Center’s Classroom Exchanges provide students the opportunity to use their voice and answer constitutional questions about topics that matter in their lives. These online, real-time conversations between your class and another class across the United States build student confidence in sharing their voice and provide students the skills to disagree without being disagreeable.

In addition to providing an opportunity for your students to discuss essential constitutional issues with their peers from across the country, exchanges meet Social Studies, English, and Speaking & Listening Standards through inquiry-based learning, all while promoting SEL skills through civil dialogue techniques.
