This course discusses some of the documents and symbols that contribute to the character of America, including the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the flag, and national monuments. Lessons include instructor-graded portfolio activities, which should be submitted as a whole before requesting the final exam. This is the first course in a two-part Character of America series (USA 041 and USA 043); however, either course may be taken independently of the other.
