This is Right on so many levels! Understanding values, wealth, and rights (6-8)

Approximately 100 minutes: Interactive exercises supported by films and PowerPoint slides.

Lesson 2 introduces a basic tool of civic engagement – the concept that our rights, and the government created to secure our rights, is derived from what we value and love. Students explore and articulate what they value, then organize their values into types of shared wealth. Students identify shared wealth as civic values enshrined in founding documents and codified into law under the Bill of Rights. Using current events, students learn how, and how well, our rights work to defend our wealth and wellbeing against government abuses of power. This lesson is critical to sustaining effective action on any issue.
