The Dove Foundation Review:
Constitution Alive is a wonderful four-DVD set that brings the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and a world of information to life. Each DVD focuses on a different aspect of the Constitution, on which Barton and Green elaborate. Watching this video series is just like taking a course on these important topics.
This series is very educational and well presented. Teachers could utilize it as a classroom tool or an entire course on the Constitution of the United States.
Every American should watch this series.
