Lesson Plan

Description:

The Supreme Court has protected many rights not listed explicitly in the Bill of Rights, such as the freedom to travel without restriction, although it has not used the Ninth Amendment, which protects, "other rights not listed", very often. This lesson examines rights people have claimed under the Ninth Amendment. Students will analyze different perspectives of personal liberty issues, and examine the way the Supreme Court has applied the Ninth Amendment to various cases.
