Lesson Developed with the National Constitution Center
Civil Liberties and Rights Worldwide:
This lesson allows students to compare civil rights and liberties as written in foundational documents throughout the world by using Rights Around the World, the National Constitution Center’s interactive website. Students compare how the United States and other countries legally or constitutionally define several rights and liberties, and then rank countries based on the extent to which the government recognizes particular citizen rights and liberties. A discussion on how well such rights are actually protected provides an interesting lesson summary and foundation for further research. The Leader's Notes (.pdf/760KB) and Student Handbook (.pdf/403KB) are available for your use.
