In this week’s writing assignment, write a two-page blog post or record a ten-minute video blog post (“vlog”) analyzing one article/blog post from a contemporary source that pertains to the Bill of Rights, which you’ll find printed in American Government by Walter E. Volkomer. You can choose a contemporary article from any newspaper or online news site of your choosing. In your post, address the following two questions:
What does your source reveal about the significance of the Bill of Rights in contemporary American life? And do you think the founding fathers conceptualized the specific “right” addressed in your source in the same we conceptualize and define it today?
In our academic setting, you’ll also need to cite your sources and not simply write an opinion piece.
