How I Use It
I think this tool is well suited to high school civics classes, perhaps even AP classes. A great feature allows the user to select two constitutions and compare them on the same screen side by side. All of the text would be overwhelming but the search by topic feature with highlighting makes it easy for students to manage.
My Take
Typical of a Google product, Constitute has a simple and clean appearance and is easy to navigate. It probably won't work well in a junior high classroom but well suited to high school. I think it is important for high school students in the U.S. to have experience looking at governments other than our own.
