For The Sake Of Security: U.S.A. Patriot Act & Bill of Rights

A substantive New York Times article about the U.S.A. Patriot Act, military tribunals, racial profiling, and the Bill of Rights forms the basis for a discussion of the complex interplay of fundamental American rights and the aftermath of 9/11. The original article for this resource was published in 2001, but it's still relevant. The Learning Network provides ample and challenging questions to foster thought and discussion. A strong complement to any Bill of Rights unit.
