How Your Rights are Protected - Mr. Rosson

Bill of Rights

Context:

You know by now that you have certain rights guaranteed to you by the Bill of Rights. What are those rights? And, who makes sure that these rights are actually protected?

The Bill of Rights seems like it should be straight forward, however it rarely is. Often, these rights are challenged through court cases that end up in the Supreme Court for the final say. It is the Supreme Court's job to decide if a certain situation has violated these rights or not.

Purpose: To understand how the Bill of Rights affects us today by looking at recent court cases and how they affect YOUR rights.

Task: You will research 1 of the original 10 amendments in the Bill of Rights and relate it to a contemporary (recent) Supreme Court case. You will present what you learn by creating a presentation on Google Slides.

Slide Elements: Most frames should have a picture that relates to the topic of the frame in addition to words.

Slide 1: Include the title and printed text of your amendment as written in the Constitution.

Slide 2: Summary of the amendment in your own words.

Slide 3: Summary of a Supreme Court Case relating to your amendment AND how it applies to your life today.

Slide 4: Is this amendment important? In other words, does it matter? Why? If not, how would you change it to matter to people today?

Slide 5: Create a hashtag for your ammendment to sum it all (examples: Amendment 2: #handsoffmygun; Amendment 5: #idon'thavetotell)
