ALEXANDRIA, VA – Browne Academy, 5917 Telegraph Rd, recently placed second in the regional We the People competition. They were just one point out of first place!
We the People is a national curriculum that focuses on the creation, content, and implementation of the U.S. Constitution.
To prepare for the competition, students worked in small groups to learn about a specific constitutional issue, prepared a statement in response to a question, and practiced responding to challenging questions from a panel of judges.
Each year, the experience culminates in a simulated congressional hearing. Browne’s performance qualified the team for the state We the People competition.
