The Preamble: The Goals of the Constitution
About This Product
The purpose of this mini-unit is to help students understand the importance of The Preamble to the United States Constitution and its significance today. This mini-unit is part of my unit on the Constitution: The Constitution is a Living Document.
This mini-unit is divided into 3 parts: Into, Through, and Beyond.
Part 1: Into provides students with the background they need to understand the Preamble, including a reading on the Preamble and vocabulary development.
Part 2: Through provides students with opportunities to paraphrase the Preamble and to critically apply the Preamble to our society today.
Part 3: Beyond offers students an opportunity to synthesize all their learning in a slideshow or Prezi project. This is a summative assessment.
All of the work that they do in Parts 1 and 2 will be used for the project in Part 3: Beyond.
The mini-unit comes with detailed lesson plans for each part, objectives and learning targets, student handouts and worksheets, former student examples, and a rubric for the project.
