Your Safety and Security or Your Civil Liberties - Which is More Important?

Students examine provisions of USA PATRIOT Act and controversies that led the ACLU to take legal action against the legislation. They create, conduct, and document results of a survey related to the PATRIOT Act and controversies surrounding the legislation. Students then develop survey questions, formulate plan for conducting survey, calculate survey results, use software to document survey findings, and present survey results to their peers/community.

After 28 years of teaching English, I signed up to teach grade nine art. My school only has 15 teachers and the students were losing out on opportunities to explore their creativity. Having access to the lessons on Lesson Planet has helped me to cover the curriculum while having fun with all the different ways of teaching the subject. To say this site is a blessing is an understatement!
