You may, or may not, be familiar with the well-known lesson plan from Rethinking Schools that I’ve previously described on this blog and use any year that I teach U.S. History. It’s a great one where students create their own Bill of Rights after reviewing various versions from different countries and the United Nations.
Today, The New York Times Learning Network posted a nice lesson plan that has different variations on the same theme. It’s worth checking out Text to Text | The Bill of Rights and ‘The Bill of Rights We Deserve’ and potentially adapting it for your own classroom. I know I’ll use of its ideas to tweak my own lesson.
I’m adding this info to The Best Resources For “Bill Of Rights Day.”
