Securing the Blessings of Liberty: How is the U.S. Constitution organized to give the government power, but not too much power?
A Redress of Grievances: How are The Bill of Rights and Amendments supposed to protect citizens?
This week in class, students will:

- Identify colonial grievances listed in the Declaration of Independence and explain how those grievances were addressed in the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
