Students define civil liberties and review excerpts from the U.S. Constitution that guarantee certain civil liberties to all Americans. They then apply their knowledge to hypothetical situations and analyze whether civil liberties violations occurred. For homework, students are assigned a content reading on the Japanese American incarceration.
Students discuss what they learned about the Japanese American incarceration and reflect on its lessons for the present and future. They then view a series of videos and reflect on modern-day civil liberty and social equity issues.
Use these extension activities to extend the lesson and reinforce understanding.
