To Keep and Bear Arms: Gun Control and the Second Amendment. Teacher's Guide.
Edwards, Amy N.; Walker, Tim
This teacher's guide is designed to accompany the two-part videotape "To Keep and Bear Arms: Gun Control and the Second Amendment." The videotape and teacher's guide should help students to: (1) understand the history of the Second Amendment; (2) examine how guns and gun control laws affect people's lives; (3) compare and contrast the many perspectives and viewpoints Americans have on the Bill of Rights, gun control, and crime in the United States; and (4) develop informed opinions about the issue and discuss the future of gun control. The guide contains four activities that involve class discussions and small-group work. Student handouts are provided. The active learning approach encourages students to go beyond recognition or knowledge of facts to begin analyzing, synthesizing, and evaluating the issues and concepts being studied. (LH)
