Teaching the Bill of Rights: The Fourteenth Amendment
COMPLEX TOPICS IN THE CLASSROOM
Whether you are teaching the desegregation of the south during the civil rights era, the debate over abortion or discussing the current controversy concerning the RFRA in Indiana, the incorporation of the Bill of Rights through the 14th amendment is central to the social history of the United States. Although so central to our nation’s history, it is a difficult and complex topic to teach. We’re here to help!
The Bill of Rights Institute has prepared videos, resources, and activities that will help you incorporate these topics into your classroom!
