Featuring an expanded format from the Introduction to the Constitution lecture series with Hillsdale College President Dr. Larry Arnn, Constitution 101 follows closely the one-semester course required of all Hillsdale College undergraduate students.
In this course, you can: watch lectures from the same Hillsdale faculty who teach on campus;

submit questions for weekly Q&A sessions with the faculty;
access a course study guide;
test your knowledge through weekly quizzes; and
upon completion of the course, receive a certificate from Hillsdale College.
You must register in order to participate in Constitution 101. Even if you have already signed up for a previous Hillsdale webcast or seminar, we ask that you complete the simple registration process for Constitution 101. There is no cost to register for this course, but we ask that you consider a donation to support our efforts to educate millions of Americans about our nations Founding documents and principles.

Constitution class offered free online. May be of interest to homeschoolers.
I think I will forward the link to all of my elected officials as well!
Hey that’s a great idea!!!
I signed up when Mark Levin was promoting this months ago. I never got any email response. Yes it is possible that I mistyped my email address but I am usually very careful about that.
I just registered again and once again I did not make a contribution for the course. I got an email response this time ("Thank you for registering for Constitution 101! This program will begin on February 20, 2012.") -- the last time I did not but I did recently get a first ever email from Hillsdale asking me to purchase The U.S. Constitution: A Reader
Thanks for the info - I just registered!
Looks interesting...I’m in.
The Reader is $30...no indication you must purchase it, however.
The previous series is here: http://constitution.hillsdale.edu/page.aspx?pid=826
“Introduction to the Constitution” videos, with links to pdf study guides.
The class is free but they do ask for a donation if you are able. They don’t take federal money and are supported by their student tuition and donations.
Glad you are registered now! See ya in class. ;)
WooHoo!!! Just signed up!!!
Thank you so much for posting. I know two young men who are going to be so excited to take the class. Hahaha, lots of sarcasm there.
Now that I’m signed up I wonder if we could sign up others. Say Barrack Hussein Obama, members of Congress, our bottom feeding socialist friends and relatives....
Heck, I think I’m going to go ahead and enroll BHO. I’ll even pay for it if he completes the course and can pass!
Their drop-down for “How did you hear about us?” doesn’t have an entry for FR.
Well they need one. I heard about them on Sean Hannity sometime last year.
Yup. Disappointing. They should at least had “other.”
I put friend.
Thanks for this.
Thank you for that link. BTTT.
Pinging the Homeschool ping list for a potential resource. Hillsdale has a great reputation and this could be a good preparation for a homeschool parents getting ready to teach the subject, or as an assignment for an older home schooled kid.
Just posted and of potential interest to your lists.
What if every FReeper got just one friend to watch this series?
Thanks for the ping. Already signed up. Larry Arne is fantastic. I listen to anything I can get of his. A true scholar and God fearing man.
I had already registered.
My home schooled 15 year old daughter and I will be doing the class together. Very excited to begin!
I'm going for both. Thanks for the ping!
I encourage everyone to sign up for and take this course about the US Constitution.
It is a free, online college level course offered by Hillsdale College and teaches about the clear intent of the founders compared to what is happening today (when they ask for a donation, if you are not able to, just elect to click through without donating).
Every American should be deeply aware of what the Constitution says, and then vote accordingly. Encourage your friends to do likewise.

Pass the word!
I am doing this with my 11 year old son and 12 year old daughter. I am excited to begin too!
I know you will have already heard about this from Rush’s show. Still, thought it sounded like something that might have interest for you.
I’m signed up. Thanks for reminding me.
Of course...there are probably hundreds of FReepers that give ZERO to Free Republic too!!
Maybe we are doomed!
Hey I was one of those guys for a couple/three years......but a buck or 10 a month keeps Free Republic in business...Not to mention awesome places like Hillsdale College!!
Thanks for pinging that out....
This looked worth it! Christianhomeschoolmama bugged me to get it done :-)
Hey a courtesy ping when you talk behind my back. ;)
If you would like to be added or dropped from the Mitten ping list freepmail me
I’m signed up! See you in class!
The same Mark Levin that claims Obama is a natural born Citizen.
I have no idea if the school is associated with Levin. He is not teaching the class however. This school is well known for it’s conservatism and it takes no federal money. If that isnt good enough for a one issue conservative then you are more than welcome to not join.
I think Biblical injunction about casting pearls before swine argues against that.
Do not give what is holy to dogs, and do not throw your pearls before swine, or they will trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.
— Matthew 7:6 NASB
Why would you even bother learning about the Constitution if you don't care if politicians uphold their sworn oaths to protect and defend it?
That's right. My ONE ISSSUE is the RULE OF LAW!
This would be a great once-a-month reading assignment for homeschooled older kids. Or any kids.
