Learning Target ImageWhat will I be able to do when I've finished this lesson?   What idea, topic, or subject is important for me to learn and understand so that I can do this?   What will I do to show that I can do this? How well will I have to do this?
 I will be able to explain connections between a current event and the civil rights guaranteed in the Constitution to my peers.  

I need to identify how a current issue involving civil rights is related to the Constitution, and I need to understand how similar issues have been handled in the past.    
I will create a brief presentation for the class using information I gathered previously for an essay, then present my topic and work to the class. 
This is a summative assessment; I need to create a presentation and share it with the class, showing a high level of skill.

Today we'll continue our presentations from yesterday. If you don't present today, you'll probably do so tomorrow.
