PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This lesson addresses the importance of freedom of speech by stressing that democratic nations must be open to unpopular opinions. It includes a list of famous court cases on the issue and chronicles its history in the United States by highlighting the Sedition Act of 1798, the Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions, Abraham Lincoln’s suspension of rights during the Civil War, World War I and the Red Scare, among others. It then looks at current trends and challenges students to ask themselves when and under what circumstances should such rights be limited. It provides links to all the sources cited as well as others that will be helpful in exploring this extremely important topic. The teacher is free to modify the lesson in any manner that facilitates its use in the classroom. (This product has been very successfully classroom tested)
