    I am in desperate need of a Website that has free case study lesson plans for Modern European History Documents as it relates to the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Also, I need a grant resource or donor that can fund a class set of 35 Chromebooks with a charging cart. Does anyone know of some agency, organization, or individual I may contact?

    I am watching the current EdmodoCon 2015 session on global connections. Any teachers in China, Iran, Mexico, Nigeria, Russia, and the United Kingdom willing to collaborate with me and my Advanced Placement Comparative Government & Politics students [seniors in high school]? I am in Oklahoma, USA.

    If you need resources for a Social Studies activity, such as a Friday before Presidents Day Party, you can host it through our Constitution Connection program and receive funding for food, beverages, and materials. Learn more at http://billofrightsinstitute.org/programs-eve...

    Hope all is well at the office. Bill of Rights Institute - Philadelphia 2014 was still the best PD I have ever attended. Thank you for all the resources and opportunity to share and work with colleagues who share the same passion and place the same importance on civic education and responsibility.
