The 917 Society's goal is to impress on students the relevance and practicality gained through an understanding of the U.S. Constitution. We plan to do that through:
1. POCKET CONSTITUTIONS
Our goal is to provide every 8th grader in the United States with a lasting, durablepocket version of the U.S. Constitution
2. EDUCATIONAL FILM
The 917 Society is producing a short film on the importance of the U.S. Constitution to every citizen's value and rights. This film is narrated by Nick Clooney and made available to educators across the United States to show in their classroom on September 17th, in honor of Constitution Day.
3. INTERACTIVE WEBSITE
The 917 Society is building a website that offers educational and curriculum support to teachers and provides social media integration for students to interact with each other for a better understanding of the U.S. Constitution. A resource page will be available to educators and students in August of 2017.
4. CONSTITUTION APP
Research shows that more 8th graders interface with information through apps than through any other medium. The 917 Society plans to leverage this by creating an app that will allow students to learn more about the U.S. Constitution and its pivotal affect on their lives.
