Have your students try these tips and tricks as they play the iCivics social studies game Do I Have a Right?:

  • Pay attention to a partner’s constitutional specialty. This information appears on the screen after they choose a partner.
  • Initially, tip bubbles appear, causing the game to pause. As the game progresses, tip bubbles taper off.  Students can turn them back on by clicking the Help button.
  • Click the Team Review button at any time to stop the clock and see who your lawyers are.
  • Click the Rights Review button at any time to stop the clock and see a list of amendments.
  • If you do not have a lawyer with the necessary expertise, ask the client to come back tomorrow to buy yourself some time to expand your firm.
  • If the lawyer you need is busy with another client, ask the new client to wait.
