During the 1970's both houses of Congress approved an Equal Rights Amendment that would prohibit discrimination based on sex.
The amendment needed 38 states to ratify it in order to be added to the Constitution. It was ratified by 35. Almost 50 years later the debate still continues.
This year for woman's history month ask your students:
Should the Equal Rights Amendment be ratified?
Students will analyze arguments from both sides. They will reach a conclusion and write a solid argument using the DRAAW+C writing framework used by lawyers.
Then, if students would like, they can submit their writing to be featured on the thinkLaw blog!
