Product Description
Engage your students in thinking through the famous World War I and freedom of speech case Schenck v. United States. This handout activity has students work together in small groups to become the Supreme Court and critically examine the arguments of both sides. Each side is summarized, accompanied by questions extracting key concepts, as well as the basic facts of the case. Students will answer "Questions to Consider" for each side, before deliberating and making a final decision as they become the Supreme Court.

This activity works great within a broader lesson on the home front during World War I or when exploring civil liberties during war.
