It is good for students to write out the basic content of this amendment and what it meant. It is important to discuss ways this amendment did not stop discriminatory practice and limitation to act as citizens for freed slaves, particularly in the South. The Chinese and other Asians are a good example of a discriminated group who did not get rights as citizens and later had this made official in the Naturalization Act of 1870.
