02.06 Developing a National Identity: Assessment

Assessment

Remember that the Magna Carta was essentially a contract between King John and the English noblemen under his rule. In it, the nobles demand certain rights as English subjects. In 63 specific points, the nobles listed the rights that they wanted from the king. Some dealt with grievances against the king’s rule, and others were more general principles of law. For your assessment, you are going to write your own Magna Carta that either establishes your rights within your family or your rights as an online student. You must list eight specific points stating what your requirements are for your personal rights and how they relate to the person granting those rights. Keep in mind that the Magna Carta was a contract between two groups and that your contract should address the needs of both you and your family, or school, fairly.

Steps to Complete:

· Read the text of the Magna Carta. Study the nobles’ demands in the original document, and note how they first state a situation and then what they demand as their rights within that situation.

· Write your own Magna Carta that either establishes your rights within your family or your rights as an online student.

Requirements:

· your list must include eight specific rights that clearly state what your requirements are for each right

· each right on your list should include a description of the situation and justification demanding it

· each right on your list should include a description of what is expected from the person or group granting those rights

Tips:

· Remember to be specific. For example, instead of demanding fewer chores, you should specifically state the number of chores you are willing to carry out on a daily or weekly basis, listing exactly what they are, and why.

· Recall that the nobles could not ask for things that the king was simply not going to give them. Be sure to ask for rights that your parents and guardians or school would see as reasonable requests.
