Though it was written more than 200 years ago, the first 10 amendments included in the Bill of Rights are still being interpreted today. Understanding how these additions to the Constitution came about is a key topic of the social studies curriculum, and it's also essential for understanding the modern political conversation. All readers can benefit from the concise explanation of why the Bill of Rights was written and what each amendment states. Students struggling with reading are better able to grasp knowledge needed in the classroom by using this excellent volume as a review.<\P>
