Lesson 15 Purpose
This lesson describes the process that the Founders devised for amending the Constitution and the first application of that process: adoption of the Bill of Rights. It also explains the power of judicial review, a process not provided for in the Constitution, and the arguments for and against judicial review.

When you have finished this lesson, you should be able to describe the two ways in which the Constitution can be amended. You should be able to identify major categories of constitutional amendments. You also should be able to explain why James Madison introduced the Bill of Rights. Finally, you should be able to evaluate, take, and defend positions on the amendment process and judicial review.
