Product Description
Students often assume that the right to vote is guaranteed in the Constitution, or in some other part of our legal system. It's a shock when they learn that it's absolutely not. Generates a dynamic discussion about the rights of citizens and the privileges of governance. Perfect for use in Civics, Government, or as a timely discussion piece during an election cycle.

This activity uses an article published by Politifact in 2013, which you can download in an adapted format at: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Are-We-Guaranteed-the-Right-to-Vote-Article-3254962

Although the article is several years old, as the amendment in question has not been successful (though Pocan and Ellison have introduced it in every session since 2013), and so the article is still extremely relevant as of 2017. Certain advocacy groups, such as Fair Vote, have been pushing for the amendment in recent years--do some research on the latest happenings to engage your students! http://www.fairvote.org/right_to_vote_amendment
