THE BILL OF RIGHTS

THE BILL OF RIGHTS

A Living Document

Can school officials make locker searches? Must athletes submit to drug testing? Are high school newspapers protected by the First Amendment? Treating these and other issues from a student's viewpoint, this live action video examines personal liberty from Magna Carta forward emphasizing the delicate balance between individual rights and the "common good." On location at historic sites in Philadelphia, the host shows how provisions in the Bill of Rights, all traceable to British abuses in the Colonies, have been applied to modern life by the courts. Includes animation, period art, question frames, and comments by historians. Grades 7–12. Color. 24 minutes. Cambridge. ©1997.
