Product Description

This lesson challenges students to think about how the Bill of Rights affords them protection on a school or university campus and in what ways they are not protected by the first 10 amendments to the Constitution.

To supplement this lesson, teachers can consider the following:

- Examine your school handbook with the students and pick out school rules that could potentially infringe upon a student's rights, per the Bill of Rights. Then, hold a conversation that explains to your students why those rules are acceptable and how rights on school campuses differ from those in the Bill of Rights.

- Invite the school principal and/or local police enforcement to lead conversations with the students so they gain a better understanding of locations and situations in which the Bill of Rights may not be applicable.

This lesson contains the following components:

- Student instructions for a response paper

- A brief information text on two court cases: Hazelwood v. Kuhlmeier and Tinker v. Des Moines

- The first 10 amendments to the U.S. Constitution (Bill of Rights)

- Information for teachers on the outcome of the Hazelwood and Tinker cases

- Additional Discussion Questions for students
