Teachers and caregivers: register your middle and high school students for a special webinar presentation of the Bill of Rights Protects You with the National Archives on Bill of Rights Day!
December 15 is designated as Bill of Rights Day to commemorate the ratification of the document on December 15, 1791.
During this interactive program, students will explore the Bill of Rights and how it outlines both limits on government and the rights of the people. Students will work together to analyze three case studies that underscore the remedies that citizens can use to address instances where their rights have been violated. This program will introduce students to the Bill of Rights and strengthen their civic understanding.
This program is a part of Civics for All of US, the national civic education initiative from the National Archives. Our interactive distance learning programs draw upon the vast holdings of the National Archives to promote the knowledge, skills, and dispositions students need for civic engagement in the 21st century. Each program is led by one of our educators located at National Archives sites, the Center for Legislative Archives, and Presidential Libraries across the country. Check civics.archives.gov for more information, including how to request a program for groups of 10 or more students.
