Amendments to the U.S. Constitution: The Bill of Rights
|Term||Special Spring Session 2020|
|Ages||9 & up|
This is a four-session course that will focus on the theories and implications behind the first ten amendments to the United States Constitution. Students will examine the amendments closely and use real-world scenarios to scrutinize when they had a lasting impact.
What we call the Bill of Rights was originally the first ten amendments to the U.S. Constitution. Students will discuss answers to the following questions: Why does the Constitution allow for changes to be made? How do changes get proposed, and what process does it take? What are the intentions of the Bill of Rights? Students will review cases in which these amendments were challenged and how those challenges affected the law.
