The Center for Legislative Archives at the National Archives in partnership with the National Archives Foundation presents this Primary Sources Educator Workshop.

This digital app (available for iPad and as a pdf) enables students to explore how the First Congress proposed amendments to the Constitution in 1789. Its core is the Senate Markup of amendments passed by the House. Students study primary sources to learn about the chronology, issues, people, and processes that shaped the Bill of Rights.
