This assignment will ask students to go to YouTube and watch the Crash Course U.S. Government and Politics video: Due Process of Law. The video will provide an in depth analysis of the Fifth and Sixth Amendments and the protection of due process that they offer. Each amendment is broken down into its clauses and explained incrementally. The Fifth Amendment principles of a grand jury, protection against double jeopardy, and protection against self incrimination are reviewed. The Sixth Amendment principles of the right to: a speedy trial, a jury of your peers, a trial in the same location you have been accused, legal council, the right to know what you have been accused of, and the ability to cross examine witnesses brought against you are also reviewed. The video then explains the famous Miranda v. Arizona case and reviews how the defendant was denied their Fifth Amendment rights. The video concludes by reviewing why it is important to have fair due process.

Students love the independence of this assignment by getting to use laptops, Chromebooks, or even their own cellphones to watch the video. Crash Course videos tend to move fast so students often find success if they watch the video through once before going back to pause/play to find the answers to all of the questions.
