Product Description
This engaging lesson plan on the landmark Supreme Court case Citizens United is a fantastic resource for teaching about campaign finance and how money has influenced American politics.

The lesson includes step-by-step instructions from beginning to end with links to recommended videos and online resources.

The lesson starts with an excerpt of the 1st Amendment and students reflect on whether they feel campaign donations are part of free speech. Then, the teacher directions will guide you through a 2-page reading on the case and its impact, a student worksheet, and a Socratic seminar based on the Majority and Dissenting Opinions. A link to an editable Google Docs version of the lesson plan is included as well!

This lesson is a great way to get students to understand the original McCain/Feingold Bipartisan Campaign Finance Reform Act, why the Supreme Court overturned it, and how that has impacted American politics today.

This resource can also be downloaded as part of my Political Parties & Elections Unit Bundle.
