The Constitutional Amendment

Constitutional Amendment

Overview

Students analyze a primary source, focusing on author purpose and audience, to deepen their understanding of enfranchisement and the debate leading up to the passage of the 14th amendment to the U.S. Constitution. After, students investigate the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact and use what they’ve learned to create a poster that supports or opposes the compact.
