Have you ever wanted to challenge your students to think critically, discuss purposefully and write logically? Then this is the lesson for you. In this lesson students will define what it means to "petition the government for a redress of grievances." Then they will apply their understanding of this right, to investigate petitions using the credible petition website www.change.org. This lesson will culminate in students discussing their petitions and writing an analysis, supported by evidence answering the question: Does the right to petition the government protect against too much government power?
