Find Your Freedom Beyond the Bill of Rights
Students analyze primary sources from the Library of Congress to identify freedoms, then review background information about the Bill of Rights to the U.S. Constitution. Next, students match the amendments related to some of the freedoms they identified through analyzing sources and then work in small groups to reach consensus and propose a new amendment to secure freedoms not included in the Bill of Rights.

Relatable to Students
The attention getter really gets students thinking right off the start. It has easy steps to follow and a visually appealing presentation for students to stay engaged. The amendments are broken down into simple language students can really grasp as well and the guiding packet that isn’t too much to print out for students! Great outline!
