This Limiting Government lesson plan also includes:

While this lesson includes several nice worksheets to identify and discuss the various limits on government (i.e. a constitution, the rule of law, separation of powers, consent of the governed, etc.), its main value lies in a case study of Alberto Fujimori's rise to power in Peru and rule as an autocrat. Learners use this real-world example to reflect on their new understandings of government limitations.
