Bill of Rights: Amendments 9-10

Thursday October 13, 2011 – Periods 1 & 3
Monday October 17, 2011 – Periods 4 & 6

Today we began with a review over Amendments 4-8. After the review, we learned that

  the Ninth Amendment provides that people’s rights are not restricted to those specified in Amendments 1 through 8.

  The Tenth Amendment restates that any powers not granted to the federal government nor prohibited to the states are reserved to the states and to the people.

Finally we discussed our practice Frame essay and looked at the SSA components of Examine and Research. We spent the last part of class working in groups on one of three assignments.
