Magna Carta: Cornerstone of the U.S. Constitution

High schoolers use the Internet to read a brief description of Magna Carta (link provided). They "walk through" the document with the teacher, identifying four major themes. Students read and discuss "The Rhetoric of Rights: Americans are 'Englishmen' and Englishmen Have Constitutional Rights." They complete a chart comparing/contrasting the Magna Carta, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights.
