Voices of History - FREE storehouse of Primary-Source based lesson plans
Voices of History is the Bill of Rights Institute’s free digital storehouse featuring the best of the institute’s primary-source-based lesson plans. Written by teachers for teachers, the materials are aligned to content standards, and are searchable by topic and accessible anywhere on any device.
One of the featured lessons (“What Are the Origins and Interpretations of the Right to Keep and Bear Arms?”) explores the origins of the Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights, as it was included to reflect the concerns of many citizens in a number of states. Another featured lesson (“The Responsibilities of Frederick Douglass”) takes an in-depth look at responsibility— striving to know and do what is best rather what is most popular—through the life of Frederick Douglass.
