A new “interactive” version of the U.S. Constitution will be made available to teachers and students as a feature of the curricular materials for Advanced Placement classes.

The multimillion-dollar tool, which allows users to explore constitutional debates through the eyes of legal scholars with a wide range of political perspectives, is a project of the National Constitution Center.

The College Board has crafted lesson plans using the Interactive Constitution for its AP government and politics courses. A module for AP U.S. History is under development. Students can use the interactive tools to read and analyze founding documents and link directly to an AP theme or learning goal.

A version of this article appeared in the September 23, 2015 edition of Education Week as Interactive Constitution to Be Used in AP Curricula
