Do I Have a Right? | - 0 views

    "Supreme Court Justice O'Connor conceived of the iCivics digital initiative to provide higher quality materials for civics education. The core of iCivics is a set of free-to-play web-based games. One of these, Do I Have a Right?, according to the designers, "teaches kids the constitutional amendments." Dissecting this a bit, the game essentially has three learning goals:

    Students will be able to:

    Identify and summarize 12 of the amendments of the U.S. Constitution (1-6, 8, 13-15, 19, and 26).
    Judge whether a variety of individuals in hypothetical situations have had their constitutional rights violated.
    Apply the relevant amendments to cases where people's rights have been violated.

    The game is aimed at a middle school audience but may be useful anywhere from 5th grade to high school, depending on the goals of the teacher and the role envisioned for the game in the unit (more on this later)."
    This game is completely addicting and a GREAT way to help student understand and apply Constitutional ammendments.

Civil War Interactive Poster | - 0 views

    "As explorers of the past, we can look at a variety of sources-maps, letters, diaries, objects, music, images, and more-to piece together a sense of the Civil War's complexity. The images and related resources from this poster are designed to get students thinking about how primary sources can help uncover stories about the past. As the poster illustrates, it takes many sources to create a more complete picture of the Civil War.

    Use this interactive poster to begin a conversation with students about what we know about the past, and especially about our nation's most deadly conflict, the Civil War."
