Larry Sabato – “A More Perfect Constitution”

October 23rd, 2007 by Dave · No Comments

I just listened to an interview with Larry Sabato on The Diane Rehm Show. They discuss his new book, A More Perfect Constitution. In the book (and interview) he outlines 23 suggestions to improve the Constitution to make it fairer.

If I were teaching ESL students in the US, I think this could be the basis for a great activity. I would begin by having students read about and discuss some of the basic rules outlined in the Constitution. Next, they would learn about some of Sabato’s suggestions, and make suggestions of their own. In fact, I might do a similar activity with my classes here, seeing as the Chinese Communist Party is having its quinquennial (!) policy-setting Party Congress.
