What you'll learn

Students discover how the five freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment apply in everyday life and in school. When are there limits and why? The landmark Supreme Court case of Tinker v. Des Moines serves as a basis to discuss how public school officials must balance a student's right to free expression with the need to provide a safe learning environment. Students then discuss and debate other real-life court cases.
