About Hub

Welcome to the United States Constitution eMedia hub. In this hub, you will find a collection of civics and history resources intended to support educators in teaching about the Constitution of the United States of America. It provides access to various educational resources, including lesson plans, videos, readings, web resources, and course materials. Many of the resources have been aligned with Utah Core Curriculum standards. Hub resources have been organized into collections based on topic, grade level, and content provider. This hub will continue to grow as more resources are curated!

The purpose of the United States Constitution Hub is to

  • promote understanding of, and education about, civic rights and responsibilities as well as the history and practical implementation of the United States Constitution,
  • curate educational resources from USBE, UEN, Utah Civic Learning Collaborative partners, and other providers related to the U.S. Constitution,
  • and meet legislative requirements to provide resources to stakeholders related to U.S. Constitution education.
