Students will debate the First Amendment in school in a fun and engaging activity that they can connect to real life. They will be debating whether or not the students had a constitutional right to publish the school newspaper based on the Bill of Rights and the First Amendment.
What you get:
1. A one and a half page short read of the event, an explanation of the Bill of Rights that relates to the issue and a list of arguments for both sides.
2. A few questions to get the students to think beyond what they just read.
3. A worksheet that will help the students write out and prepare for the debate.
