Summary

The five episodes from American life narrated in this unit attempt to show various methods of protest against different oppressions, ranging from revolt against the law by armed resistance, to getting an objectionable practice eliminated by a fresh interpretation of the Constitution through the courts. An important fact is pointed up--even though the Constitution gives us certain rights, we must demand them. If we do not claim our freedom from imprisonment for debts (Part I), our freedom from racial discrimination (Part II), our freedom to assemble and speak (Part III), to work under fair conditions (Part IV), and to practice or not practice our religious beliefs (Part V), others may take them away. A few of the general teaching objectives are: 1) to understand that political protest (and labor strikes) may be the result of intolerable economic conditions; 2) to understand that economic pressures among the poor may lead to rebellion; 3) to believe in the legal processes set up for redress of grievances; and, 4) to realize that changing a law by using the judicial process is difficult and yet is guaranteed by the Bill of Rights. Explanatory notes on the narratives, suggested discussion questions, a vocabulary list, and attitude and content relevant resources. Related documents are ED 053 015 through ED 053 017. (Author/JLB)
