授课大纲

This course will run from January 27 through early May (we are likely to provide you time after the release of the final lectures [April 21 – 25] to complete your final writing assignment). Please note that we will take a spring break from March 9 – 14.

Weeks 1 – 6 will cover material from the book America’s Constitution: A Biography. Weeks 7 – 12 will cover material from the book America’s Unwritten Constitution. We will cover two chapter topics each week. We will also provide “bonus content” each week. The nature of this content will vary. It might be a video conversation between Professor Amar and students or colleagues. It might be a live video chat with the teaching assistants. It might be one hour where the TAs answer questions in real-time in one of the discussion forums.

Each writing assignment will have 3 options; you should choose one option to submit. When you evaluate your peers’ assignments, please make sure you grade the same option that you selected. E.g., If you submitted an assignment for “Essay 1 (Option 3)” you should only evaluate other students who submitted Option 3.
