Rights and Responsibilities as Citizens

Pre Video:
  1. What do you know about rights? What is a “right”?
  2. What do you think it means to “have a say” about something?
  3. What rights do you predict Canadians have if someone is a citizen?
  4. What does it mean to have a “responsibility” as a citizen?
During Video:
  1. T provides a “T- Chart” for “rights” and “responsibilities”
  2. Students write information for “rights” and “responsibilities” in each column.
After Video:
  1. Students share and compare their notes with partners.
  2. Students compare answers on T Charts with another group.
  3. What do you think are the 3 most important rights/responsibilities?
Writing Task:

Work with a partner to write a short paragraph using the outline below:

The most important right is the right to ____________________ because if citizens have this 
they can _______________________________________. If citizens did not have this right, then they ___________________________________. Therefore, we believe this is the most important right of the ones we have learned about.


Each pair will present their declaration as a short presentation.
