Review 1 for You Decide! Applying the Bill of Rights to Real Cases
This is a wonderful resource to use to teach your kids about the Bill of Rights. We are using it for our high school Junior in conjunction with American History. Great discussion questions; many activities are challenging my son's way of thinking! Very well worth the cost. (You WILL need the teacher's manual along with the student book.)

Review 2 for You Decide! Applying the Bill of Rights to Real Cases
Date:August 27, 2008
By the end of this book, every student will not only know The Bill of Rights; but by having to apply the Bill of Rights to actual court cases, each student will fully understand the Bill of Rights and how these Bills affect them and the world we live in!How does this book do this? By breaking each amendment own into 'lesson series'. For example: Your student will be introduced to an actual court case. They will then have to look at the Amendment that corresponds with the lesson and through reasonable deductions, they will have to decide on the outcome of the case. They will then dig deeper into the actual amendment by carefully exploring the vocabulary and translating the amendment into his/her own words. The lesson series will end with the actual court case conclusions!Teachers, be ready for a lot of discussion time!!! In my humble opinion, each 'lesson series' could take up to a week to complete. (Keep in mind... the teacher's manuel is essential!!!)Critical Thinking has done it again with publishing a must-have for every 6-12 grade student!
