As a man is said to have a right to his property, he may be equally said to have a property in his rights. Where an excess of power prevails, property of no sort is duly respected. No man is safe in his opinions, his person, his faculties, or his possessions.
~James Madison, 1792
These lessons are updated daily throughout the school year and are designed for middle and high school students. Each lesson includes a news article and discussion questions designed to promote critical thinking, challenge assumptions, and stimulate class discussion. In an attempt to offer variety, the two daily articles often are of different lengths and reading levels and occasionally offer different perspectives on an issue or event.
Note: Each new lesson remains on the website for one week.
