PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This lesson is a great way of teaching civil liberties by engaging students in controversial cases regarding civil liberties. There is always a conflict of interest in practicing a civil liberty which is great for discussions. (For instance, Freedom of speech vs. national security). The worksheet provided has a number of different specific cases in which the application of civil liberties is a bit controversial. Students will take the role of Supreme Court justices (if they haven’t learned it, explain to them that the SC usually decides the boundaries on these controversial issues) and discuss in pairs each case and come up with a decision. They need to provide a short two sentence rationale for each decision. Then you can come together as a group and discuss each case. Here you give away to them what the SC ruling has been and why. You may want to alternate between pair discussion and class discussion for each section instead of having them discuss in pairs all of the sections at once. Answer key is provided for SC decision in each case. The worksheet includes 14 cases on the issues of freedom of speech and press, freedom of religion, rights of those accused of crimes and privacy.
