Aiming to educate students in grades 8-12 on the Bill of Rights, this student guide focuses on each of the of the first 10 amendments and the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. Organized by amendment, each section includes the text of the amendment and its counterpart in the Maine Constitution; an introduction to the legal principles embodied in that amendment; and edited court cases interpreting the amendment, each preceded by its own brief introduction. The curriculum may be used as a whole to provide in-depth study of the Bill of Rights, or specific amendments of particular interest may be selected. The curriculum is intended to be incorporated in existing history, government, civics, law, or social studies courses at the high school or upper middle school level. Each section contains its own table of contents directing readers to constitutional issues and court cases relevant to specific amendments. (TSV)
