Freedom Matters! Curriculum

This supplemental curriculum aims to help high school grade students connect the foundations of freedom to today’s global struggles for liberty.

Freedom Matters! is a project of the Bush Institute at the George W. Bush Presidential Center. Developed in cooperation with the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum, and with generous support from the John Templeton Foundation, this supplemental curriculum aims to help high school grade students connect the foundations of freedom to today’s global struggles for liberty.

The content is particularly relevant to global studies and world history courses. These inclusive, teacher-led lesson plans combine the personal stories of dissidents and democracy advocates featured in the Freedom Collection with broader, universal concepts of freedom, rule of law, limited representative government, and the protection of individual political, economic, and personal rights. The lesson plans correspond to essential knowledge and skills students are exploring in the classroom. The project includes an in-depth, interactive timeline.
