Do I have a Right?-Teacher’s Guide


Do I Have A Right? is a fast-paced video game that teaches students what rights are contained in the Bill of Rights and other constitutional amendments.  Students manage a law firm staffed with lawyers who specialize in constitutional law and must decide whether each visiting client “has a right.”  If so, students match the client with a lawyer who specializes in the relevant constitutional amendment.

Students grow their firms over a series of 8-hour “days”. Their successes increase the lawyers’ number of specializations and earn them points to hire more
lawyers and buy cool amenities to keep waiting clients happy.  But the clock is ticking, and students have to learn their amendments fast if they want to keep winning cases and stop clients from walking out!
