A High School Student's Bill of Rights. Teaching Resources in the ERIC Database (TRIED) Series.
Gottlieb, Stephen S.
Designed to tap the rich collection of instructional techniques in the ERIC database, this compilation of lesson plans focuses on teaching high school students their Constitutional rights and responsibilities. The 40 lesson plans in the book cover the courts and basic rights, the rights of criminal suspects, the rights of minors and education law, and individual freedom at school and in the working world. The book includes an activities chart which indicates the focus and types of activities (such as class discussion, creative writing, critical reading, role playing, group activities, etc.) found in the various lessons. The United States Bill of Rights, The Northwest Ordinance of 1787, and the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights are attached. (RS)
