Reading List

There's been a lot of discussion on the LDS Classical Homeschool yahoo group about what sort of Constitutional education we should give our children. Or, in several people's case (including my own) our own education. Here are some of the titles recommended:

*The Constitution
*The Bill of Rights
*The Law by Bastiat
*The Proper Role of Government by Ezra Taft Benson
*The Improper Role of Government by H Verlan Andersen
*"Stand Up For Freedom" a Speech by Ezra Taft Benson
*"Protecting Freedom - An Immediate Responsibility" by Ezra Taft Benson Oct 1966 Conference
*Webster's 1828 Dictionary
*Underground System of Education by John Taylor Gatto
*The Making of America by Cleon Skousen
*The 5,000 Year Leap by Cleon Skousen
*Uncle Eric books (Whatever Happened to Penny Candy, How Ancient Rome affects us Today, and more available at www.bluestockingpress.com )
*The Federalist Papers
*John Locke (I think it's 2 treatises on government)
*Someone named "Montesquieu" who influenced Madison
*Study Shakespeare - if you follow his language you'll be able to handle the Founder's language
*Glen Kimber's I Love America series (www.kimberacademy.net)

And some others I've found:
