Guns & Taxes: The Bill of Rights
Taught by Glenna A.
By day, Glenna teaches social studies at a high school in downtown Brooklyn. In her spare time, she likes “Jeopardy,” needlepoint, trivia, rock climbing, and captive audiences. She especially loves talking about history.
The Bill of Rights is more than the first ten Amendments to the Constitution.
It's an innovative, forward thinking document that introduced the first political parties and established a culture of protest and change that has shaped American history. Together, we'll examine each amendment, explore some Supreme Court cases, and understand the role of individual liberties in our lives today.
