The chapter entitled “The Bill of Rights and the Constitutional Amendment Process” is an excellent supplement to any political science or American government course. This module introduces, in an efficient and interesting way, the Bill of Rights and the procedures for making changes to the United State Constitution. Nearly every slide in this module contains current and active links to a wide variety of high-quality scholarly and journalistic resources that augment the concepts. These links make it easy for Instructors to develop and engage students in examining and explaining why the Bill or Rights was proposed, why it was rejected in Convention, the controversy between Hamilton and Mason over the issue, and why it was eventually adopted. In addition, students will be introduced to Article V of the Constitution, the steps in the amendment process, and an examination of the proposals that have been accepted and rejected by the states.
Watch the material come to life as you assist students in exploring the concept of Constitutional change in an interactive format. You will notice that the presentation pays attention to important details like consistent color schemes, animations, and transitions in order to stimulate and maximize learner interest. Do not take my word for it; please access the product preview and see for yourself.
This important tool will assist you in not only introducing these concepts to students but will also allow them the opportunity to go into greater depth with the subject matter. Finally, many slides in this chapter are equipped with notes for Instructors designed to assist users in maximizing the potential of each slide. This saves you time and provides you with numerous ideas for developing classroom discussions or for creating new assignments for students to take home.
