HURRY TEACHERS: FREE Social Studies Resource for Your School or Library

Editor Note:  Be sure to go play the Constitutional Convention Game on the Sunnylands Classroom site.  Naturally, we chose to represent Georgia during the game.  It's a great game and a fantastic look at the making of the Constitution.

/PRNewswire/ -- The following is being issued by the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania:

The Annenberg Foundation Trust at Sunnylands is releasing a 23-minute documentary for Constitution Day. The documentary tells the story of Thaddeus Edmonson, an African American construction worker whose personal injury lawsuit in 1991 became a Supreme Court landmark case on the right to an impartial jury.

As with all Sunnylands Trust videos, this documentary is extremely well-produced and classroom ready. While supplies last, it will be sent free of charge to teachers, schools and libraries that become part of the Sunnylands Classroom community. Please sign-up at http://www.sunnylandsclassroom.org/ConstitutionDay/Registration.aspx. Remember: Constitution Day is September 17th.

Especially at a time when school budgets are being slashed, this social studies documentary will be a most welcome addition to any school or public library.
