The Bill of Rights: A Law-Related Curriculum for Grades 4-6. Student Materials and Teacher's Guide.
Reinehr, Fran; And Others
This curriculum guide and accompanying teacher's guide focus on the individual and personal freedoms guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution and as interpreted by the courts--namely, the idea of fundamental rights as expressed through the concepts of liberty, justice, and equality. The curriculum includes 10 lessons: (1) Rights Are Fundamental; (2) The Bill of Rights; (3) Freedom of Speech; (4) Freedom of the Press; (5) The Right to Assemble Peacefully; (6) Freedom of Religion; (7) Due Process; (8) Search and Seizure; (9) Equal Protection; and (10) The Bill of Rights Today. The teacher's guide contains goals and objectives for each lesson, points of law that explain the legal concepts involved in each lesson and that are intended as background information for the teachers, and explanations of and recommended directions for each activity. A 37-item bibliography of children's literature about topics covered in the curriculum is appended. (DB)
