Ideas, issues, events, and individuals come to life as Emmy award-winning journalist Bill Moyers reports on the Constitutional Convention of 1787. Filmed at Independence Hall and filled with historical images and passages from the diaries, letters, and records of the Framers themselves, this two-part set is an indispensable tool for teaching the Constitution. All 76 clips (2:35 each), culled from the classic Moyers: Report from Philadelphia PBS television series, are arranged into groupings that take a thematic approach to the doings and decisions of that momentous period—The Context/Setting of 1787; Democracy, Representative Government, and the People; Religion and the Constitution; Slavery; American Indians and the West; National Powers; and more. In addition, a comprehensive 54-page viewable/printable instructor’s guide, available online, provides educational context for the clips, with learning objectives, pre-teaching ideas, post-viewing discussion questions, extension activities, a glossary of pertinent terms, and a list of supplemental print and online resources.
