Product Description
This 15-minute TED Talk takes a look at how Constitutional rights have been denied in the prison system. Potter's talk is very engaging and shines light on a topic some might not be aware of today. This assignment would be great for an opener in Law & Justice, Criminal Justice, Government, or Civics course. There are 12 questions on this worksheet and I have included the answer key.


From TED.com "Investigative journalist Will Potter is the only reporter who has been inside a Communications Management Unit, or CMU, within a US prison. These units were opened secretly, and radically alter how prisoners are treated -- even preventing them from hugging their children. Potter, a TED Fellow, shows us who is imprisoned here, and how the government is trying to keep them hidden. 'The message was clear,' he says. 'Don't talk about this place.'"

This talk is also available in a 5 Pack TED Talk Bundle Ted Talk 5 Pack Bundle
