The purpose of this activity is to help students understand their rights at school and to understand the current issues of privacy regarding the National Security Administration
All information gathered for this activity was taken from the American Civil Liberties Union and from articles from the United States of Secrets site from PBS.
To handle this large topic, students will receive one piece of the puzzle (one numbered part).
Write the questions or article names on the board. Students will put the information in their own words from their numbered slip on the board. For the larger articles, the important information is bolded for students who might need extra help.
After all information is provided, a discussion can occur on the rights of students and of Americans as a whole as regards privacy.
One of the goals is for students to see and discuss the differences between theory (written laws) and laws in practice.
Students will respond to the exit questions after the JIGSAW activity and discussion.
