Product Description

This ready-to-teach handout and worksheet is designed to be used alongside the study of The Wave by Morton Rhue / Todd Strasser, and goes into depth about a central issue of the novel: freedom of speech, in particular in connection with religious provocation and the various other problematic dimensions of free speech. The handout includes:

1) Extensive newspaper article detailing the various issues of freedom of speech and how it faces various obstacles and is becoming an increasingly hot topic in journalism and politics again.

2) Follow-up questions to facilitate an in-depth analysis and discussion of the newspaper articles central arguments.

3) Further discussion questions, essay prompts and the possibility to use the topic for an extensive in-class debate (includes debate prompts).

I've included a second version of the article and the questions so that you can use it without an explicit connection to The Wave, if you wish.

This handout is also included in my The Wave Complete Teaching Worksheets Bundle!

Enjoy, and please leave feedback!
