Hillsdale College Constitution 101 Class Offered Free Online
hillsdale.edu ^ | 2/10/12

Posted on 02/10/2012 11:04:37 AM PST by christianhomeschoolmommaof3

“Constitution 101: The Meaning and History of the Constitution” is a 10-week online course presented by Hillsdale College.

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;

• study the same readings taught in the College course;

• 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 nation’s Founding documents and principles.

"After submitting your registration information, you will receive a confirmation message and an email with instructions about logging-in to this site and viewing the webcasts."

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

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. ;)

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.

AMEN!

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.

If there's one FReeper that can't give a buck....we are doomed.

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!!

Isn't this school associated with Mark Levin?

The same Mark Levin that claims Obama is a natural born Citizen.

I'll pass.

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.

"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...."

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 course should be essential for anyone who can take it, as it will clarify some things that probably nobody else really knows. It is the course required of all undergraduates at Hillsdale. The only comparable required courses are at the US Military Academies.

Excellent point. "Imprimis" is a Hillsdale publication of transcripts of speeches delivered by leading figures in the conservative domain. Once a month, delivered free, no strings. You can subscribe at their website. Any one serious about contemporary conservative thought will appreciate this resource.

This would be a great once-a-month reading assignment for homeschooled older kids. Or any kids.
