Participation in Polk Foundation’s The Tennessee Star US Constitution Project can happen in three ways
You can buy one or more copies of the pilot project edition of the Tennessee Star Guide to the U.S. Constitution and The Bill of Rights to study and share secondary school level students you care about.
Alternatively, you may allocate an amount to be used to pay for the books in classroom pilot projects as they develop.

If you are a secondary school educator, you may participate in the pilot project of the Tennessee Star Constitution Project.
Part of being in the pilot project includes receiving a copy of the pilot project edition for each student, and agreeing to participate in the improvement process by suggesting additional content and possibly developing chapter-level course work and questions as we head toward the first edition printing in May of 2018.
