You Decide! Applying Court Cases to the Bill of Rights – Grades 7-10

The United States Constitution was drafted in Philadelphia in 1787 at the Constitutional Convention. However, many delegates felt that the document was not truly complete, since it did not include a list of rights that offered people protections from abuses of power by the government. These delegates felt that the lack of these rights would prevent ratification by the States, and after further deliberations, crafted ten Amendments to the Constitution that are known collectively as the Bill of Rights.

In this survey class, we will explore the Bill of Rights, using cases and examples covering the first eight Amendments, that will cover both the Founders’ intent and further interpretation by the judiciary.

We will discuss cases and examples in class, in order to illustrate each Amendment. The class is highly interactive. Students are expected to participate.

The goal of this class is for students to develop an understanding of the Bill of Rights as it relates to the US Constitution.

NOTE:
Registration deadline is March 15, 2021.
