Intended for high school and middle school with adaptations for elementary school, the lessons cover the Americans with Disabilities Act in relation to accommodations for students with disabilities, the analysis of 30-second political advertisements, freedom of speech as it applies to rock and roll songs, hate crimes in Germany, term limitations for the United States Congress, reform of political lobbying, minority rights, non-violent dispute resolution, drunk driving, and the ban on homosexuals in the military. Each of the lesson plans provide a lesson description, objectives, key concepts and vocabulary, detailed steps for implementing the lesson, questions for class discussion, and suggestions for additional activities, such as inviting resource persons and drafting letters to legislators. The lessons also provide handouts of relevant legislation, court cases, and survey forms. The lesson on minority rights in Germany offers for comparison the United States Bill of Rights and the Basic Law for the Federal Republic of Germany. (JD)
