The Federalist Papers, which explain America’s founding principles and the practical means for securing them, were instrumental in winning the hard-fought battle to ratify the Constitution.
Yet today, high-school students often find it difficult to read them, if they are even encouraged to do so.
To address that problem, and to help America’s future leaders to better understand the principles embedded in the Constitution, One Generation Away has published a book of essays by leading constitutional scholars that explains the central themes of the Federalist Papers in a language that upper-level high-school students of today will more easily comprehend.
Please watch below as Cato Institute hosts an in depth discussion of this book by two of its authors, followed by a discussion of how it may be used in the classroom.
