Unit 3 ELD 4 B Presentation

This week we will be reviewing the Bill of Rights, discussing why these rights are important, and testing ourselves on how well we know them. Part of the test will require students to write short mini-essays of three sentences or more.

Then, we will begin reading Amistad Rising, a story about an African man who was kidnapped along with others to be sold into slavery. However, the Africans mutinied and were subsequently put on trial in the United States for the murder of their kidnappers.

We will discuss how the Bill of Rights protects this nation's people from kidnapping, slavery, deportation into slavery, etc.
