About

Overview

The Bill of Rights is one of the most cited texts in political debates today. Indeed, courts and lawmakers are deeply involved in interpreting and understanding the text of the first ten amendments to the US Constitution, making it perhaps the most important primary source with which readers should be familiar. This vibrantly illustrated lower elementary title helps readers understand the text of the Bill of Rights and its importance to political discourse today. Compare and Contrast boxes help readers compare the rights granted by the different amendments, while Think About It boxes pose critical questions about the importance of the original text.
