Reviewer Comments:

This resource is a lesson plan focused on the Bill of Rights. Students learn about the Bill of Rights through direct instruction, examining Supreme Court cases, watching videos and reading articles, and participating in a Socratic seminar on gun control. The lesson is well-organized and links and detailed procedures are provided. It should be noted that the Supreme Court cases are not included and would need to be researched and reproduced for the students.

This is an outstanding lesson that uses a variety of media-related instructional approaches that fairly tackles a highly contentious issue. It makes heavy use of cooperative learning techniques and allows students to form their own opinions based on a number of different sources. I have no suggestions, and may steal it for my own Civics class. Well done!
