Project Description


The balancing act between civil rights and security in the United States has always brought up complicated questions: is it necessary to suspend or ignore our civil rights in times of crisis or upheaval in order to maintain security? Or do these suspensions of rights make us less safe?

The narratives and lesson plans in Patriot Acts bring home these realities in a personal and relatable way, allowing students to grapple with the human costs that lie at the heart of this pertinent contemporary issue.
