What students say
Thank you for the brilliant work you are doing. My son and I have thoroughly enjoyed "The US Constitution 101" and "The US Constitution 201." As a Legal Permanent Resident from the UK, I have gained a whole new appreciation for the Founders and the level of thought they put into the Constitution.
Takes the student through the full context of the course subject matter. Wonderful insight into how we strayed and its consequences and offers a solution.
It's refreshing listening to ideas and thoughts that would be discussed in a classroom setting. It's been quite a few years since I have been in that type of setting. It's nice to be back. It gets the creative juices running in the brain again.
