The Bill of Rights: A User's Guide [and] Teacher's Guide. Second Edition.
Monk, Linda R.
Designed to help make the Bill of Rights a living document, the student text (user's guide) describes the history of each right in the Bill of Rights and explains how the Supreme Court has interpreted those rights throughout history. The units trace the history of the Bill of Rights, describe and analyze the first ten amendments, and explain the importance of the Fourteenth Amendment in expanding the concept of rights in the United States. The text contains stories of "ordinary" people who have helped in keeping the Bill of Rights a living document, and also includes a 27-item glossary, suggested reading list, as well as case and subject indexes. The teacher's guide offers classroom activities and handouts that correspond to the student text. Each lesson contains objectives, terms, concepts, and student activities. (TSV)
