The Bill of Rights

Introduction

The Bill of Rights is a fundamental part of our government, and, without them America arguably can not exist like it does today.

Task

This project was designed to demonstrate a class assignment. You will create your own task and WebQuest. For this task you will research the importance, background and real life examples of the Bill of Rights and determine how they apply to our daily lives. Upon completion of the research you will create your own multimedia presentation that provides real life examples of how each Amendment has been applied or challenged in today's society. You will also create a section that includes a class set "Bill of Rights" that you think should be applied in our class today.
