The Charters of Freedom: The Bill of Rights.
National Archives and Records Administration, Washington, DC. Office of Public Programs.
This publication is intended for teachers bringing a class to visit the National Archives in Washington, D.C., for a workshop on primary documents. The National Archives serves as the repository for all federal records of enduring value. Primary sources are vital teaching tools because they actively engage the student's imagination so that he or she may visualize past events and make sense of their reality and meaning. This publication concerns the Bill of Rights to the U.S. Constitution. Historical information on the Bill of Rights as well as on the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II is included. A photograph of the Bill of Rights and a photograph of persons of Japanese ancestry arriving at an internment center during World War II are included, as are two student exercises. (DB)
