PRLog - Jan. 28, 2010 - “There are textbooks that do a superb job of teaching civil liberties. Our Constitutional Rights is something different. It complements those formal lesson plans but it’s fresher and more fun.” says Pat Shiplett, editor. “The Constitution contains the most powerful ideas ever put on paper. Humor helps bring them to life.”
Unexpected visuals add energy to this highly original web site.
Some people may not be totally comfortable with this unorthodox web site. But teachers who encourage students to think outside the box will appreciate that Our Constitutional Rights blows the dust off our civil liberties and shows how they shape our society.
Like the Constitution itself, the site deals with mature themes — from religion to the death penalty to the bedroom. It’s written for mature teens and older.
