Understanding Our Basic Freedoms: the Bill of Rights in Action. A Worktext for Adult Learners. Teachers' Guide [and Student Worktext].
Lee, Kathleen; Anderson, Pamela
Aiming to educate adult learners on the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights, this teachers' guide focuses on cases and controversies about individual rights which are most relevant to the lives of adults. The worktext for adult learners provides some basic background information about the development and interpretation of the Bill of Rights. A timeline is included so the reader can place events in chronological order. Teaching aids such as learning objectives for each unit, vocabulary words, a glossary, and questions and learning activities will help readers understand and experience the impact of The Bill of Rights on their daily lives. Although, the first 10 Amendments of the Bill of Rights are written out in their entirety, the focus will be on the First, the Second the Fourth, Fifth and Sixth (taken as a group); and the Fourteenth Amendments. Contains a seven-item annotated bibliography. (TSV)
