LIVING AMENDMENTS PBL

Students will continue their work on our next PBL.

The driving question is Why is it important to have a contemporary understanding of the Constitution and its amendments?


Next week, students will summarize the twenty-seven amendments to the United States Constitution. The summaries should include the rights the amendment gives United States citizens.


Before Spring Break, students were assigned to use words and images, to answer the following question. What are the two methods for making amendments to the Constitution of the United States? Cite your source(s) in MLA format.
