US Constitution, French and Montesquieu
September 17th is the United States' Constitution Day/Citizenship Day. I used this short powerpoint while teaching French in New York to look at the influence that the French Enlightenment thinker, Montesquieu, had on the writers of the US Constitution. Would take 5-10 min. of a class, or can launch into a lesson researching Montesquieu and the Enlightenment.
