The Necessity of Rights
Learning Objective: Through intensive thinking analysis of selected Amendments to the U.S. Constitution, we learn that a republic cannot exist without the protection and promotion of rights.
Analyze these three documents: The U.S. Constitution (1787), Franceâ€™s Declarations of Man and Citizen (1789), and the United Nationâ€™s The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948). Consider the rights that are common to all three documents. Notice that not all rights appear in all three papers. Compose an essay in which you compare and contrast the rights found in the documents and make a case for the three rights, that are found in all three documents, that you consider most important.
