Catherine has been studying and teaching the Constitution for almost ten years. She understands the frustrations of trying to teach it but not knowing where to start. Out of her own studies came a deeper understanding of the importance, then and now, of this critical document. That led to a deep desire to share the Constitution with her own students and to help others do the same. Here she brings it to life in its historic context, giving you everything you need to start learning (or teaching) the U.S. Constitution!  

You will not need to download the Timeline of the Constitution that she has available separately (since it is contained within this book), but you will most likely want to purchase the "Important Constitutional Documents", an inexpensive additional resource.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
