Over the next couple of class periods we will continue to look at the similarities and differences between the state and federal government. This will include how each government is organized, the responsibilities of each government, as well as the services and obligations of both levels of government.
We left off last year with the Bill of Rights. These rights are actually the first ten amendments to the US Constitution. So the writers of the Constitution knew that there would need to be changes to the Constitutions throughout the countries life and therefore, set up something called the amendment process. Simply put:
Learning Goal I: Students will understand and be able to explain the amendment process to the US Constitution.
Learning Goal II: Students will understand the historical relevance of key amendments tot he US Constitution.
Task I: What's that Right Again?
The Bill of Rights did a great job ensuring certain rights, but as you will investigate today, not all rights were guaranteed and not all people were protected. Today, you will be analyzing the impact of a number of key amendments that have been added to the Constitution throughout our history. Some are very old and some are much more recent.
Each amendment below has a description and some examples of “what happened.” You and your shoulder partner will be answering the following essential questions by posting your responses on Padet:
Task II: What's Your Source?
We have been spending some time working with primary sources and now it's your job to find one that represents YOUR amendment. Utilizing the Library of Congress' extensive data base, you and your partner will search for one source which you believe represents your amendment. You will post a copy of your picture and a brief description explaining how your image represents the amendment you were assigned. To get to the Library of Congress' Website - Click Here!
Homework: Complete Chapter 5 & 6 in your My Reflections books. (Pages 61-93). This assignment is due next Tuesday/Wednesday depending on your class period.
