Election Day 2009- Our Constitution

I came across this friendly reminder from someone in Italy who admires the United States Constitution, and it seemed a suitable day to share it. Sometimes outsiders (think of Alexis de Tocqueville) see very clearly!

I thought it would be appropriate on this Election Day to share the Preamble to the Constitution of the United States, and a link to the rest. The Constitution is a document every American should know. If you’d like to get better acquainted with it, use each paragraph for copywork. By the time you finish copying it in your best handwriting, you (and your students) will be much better acquainted with this remarkable document.


We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Read the rest of the Constitution at the Emory Law School website:
