I have worked at several schools in the past where I did not have the ability to check out books to students because I only had enough for a class set. Because of this, I created materials in which I wouldn't need my students to have a textbook at home to be prepared for any tests or quizzes that they received. The power points that I created are quite extensive and include guided notes and video that go along with them. The students do not write down every word from the presentation and can focus on listening and learning the material from the lecture. If you are the type of teacher who does not like the idea of guided lecture then this bundle is not for you. Everything I have created stems off of that. Additional items that I have posted can be used for notebook check assignments, which I usually have whenever I get to the end of a unit or homework.
I created this bundle for an AP U.S. Government class which I have been teaching for the last 6 years. This bundle was created to match the course redesign which is going into effect for the 2018-2019 school year. Because it is a bigger file, this is a Google Drive download. If you have any questions or problems feel free to email me and I'll get you squared away. This bundle includes the following resources:
- An 161 slide (1.32 gb) power point that goes over civil rights and civil liberties and how they have changed over time. I have included pictures and a bunch of video throughout the presentation.
- A 14 page guided note packet that goes along with the presentation. This includes a summary and key vocabulary terms that students need to know at the end. It dives into court cases that have expanded freedoms to the state level over time. This section includes some of the major court cases that the College Board has included in their redesign of AP Government for the 2018-2019 school year. A great deal of time is spent on the Bill of Rights and how civil rights have expanded throughout the 20th and 21st centuries.
- Warm-ups and suggestions. The warm-ups can be given at the start of class and the suggestions portions gives you ideas to incorporate your school computer lab into the unit.
- Chapter research questions that I give as a homework assignment. This goes along with your school textbook but you will need to change the page numbers at the top.
- Martin Luther King - A Letter from a Birmingham Jail reading and questions - This is one of the required documents that the College Board has labeled as part of the course redesign.
- Civil Liberties Hypotheticals handout - Students have to apply the Bill of Rights to different scenarios to see which rights have been violated.
- 1964 Louisiana literacy test - shows how voters were disenfranchised throughout the Jim Crow era.
That's everything! Thank you very much for considering this product. Cheers!
