Documents of Freedom: Liberty and Equality
February 23, 2016
The Bill of Rights Institute is hosting a free one-day workshop entitled Documents of Freedom: Liberty and Equality.
At this free one-day seminar, you will discover resources to help engage your students with primary sources including the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, additional amendments, Supreme Court cases, treaties, and legislation. They will also engage with secondary sources that will give them background on the groups such as Native Americans, African Americans, and women who fought for liberty and equality throughout American history.
We will provide you with easy-to-implement resources to bring these concepts alive as well as provide new methods to teach these topics to your students as we explore our online textbook, Documents of Freedom.
This workshop is for U.S. History, Government, Economics, Civics, and Social Studies teachers and will help meet numerous state standards.
