Scholar Exchange: The Second Amendment (Middle School Level)
In this session, students will engage in a conversation on the Second Amendment, and its protection of the right to keep and bear arms. This exchange introduces students to different viewpoints and debates surrounding the Second Amendment by using the National Constitution Center’s Interactive Constitution. Students will analyze the Second Amendment’s text and history, how the Second Amendment shaped its core protections, and how the Supreme Court has interpreted it over time. Through these discussions, students will build understanding of the resources and methods used by Supreme Court justices and constitutional scholars when analyzing and forming opinions this provision. Students will identify key points of agreement and disagreement from essays by constitutional scholars Nelson Lund and Adam Winkler in the Constitution Center’s Interactive Constitution. Students will be able to trace the historic development of the Second Amendment with help from the Common Interpretation and Matters of Debate essays, and use evidence from the readings to explore modern interpretation of the Second Amendment.

*Session is for middle school students and their teachers. Teachers, please share Zoom information with students!
