11/2 Wednesday

Guiding Question:
What rights do the first ten amendments guarantee us?

Students will investigate the freedoms ensured by the Bill of Rights by reading an informational text and creating a skit in their small groups with a score of at least 3/4 according to the rubric. 

HSS.8.2.6 - Enumerate the powers of government set forth in the Constitution and the fundamental liberties ensured by the Bill of Rights
ELD B.6 - Read informational texts closely to determine how meaning is made

Do Now (Voice Level 0) 2 minutes: 
Write today's objective in your own words. What is the activity you will be completing? 

Whole Group  (Voice Level 1-2) 30 minutes: 
Each group will be assigned a different Amendment from the Bill of Rights. Once you have your assigned amendment, you must write a two-minute skit that informs the rest of your class about the liberties (or freedoms) secured by your amendment. Be creative! 

Exit Ticket (Voice Level 0) 5 minutes: 
Reflect on your objective. Were you able to meet the objective for today, yes or no and why?

Finish your skits and be ready to perform at the beginning of class on Thursday/Friday. You do not have to memorize your lines, you can bring your paper up to the front of class with you.
