Constitution Writing Assignment

Constitution Writing Assignment

Use two tools of analysis for better understanding of Constitution.  Choose a Clause or Amendment and analyze.

Instructions:  Discuss whether you agree or disagree with the amendment with an example or two.  Then describe how the amendment is relevant (or irrelevant) today.  Include an opening sentence that grabs attention. I grade based on the quality of the analysis, the supporting evidence/examples, grammar, structure, organization, and clarity. That being said this assignment is not done until it has completed its purpose; in this case using two types of analyses to develop further understanding.

Here’s a PDF of the Constitution.

Example: Thesis might look like:  This essay identifies the important amendment ______.   The amendment is relevant today because of ______________ .  An example of this is _____________.   When looking at the amendment’s relevance today, I feel ____________ about the amendment, because __________.
