Lesson Plan: Fayette v. Take Two

Activity Steps:

This lesson usually takes two to three class periods. We begin with a brainstorm/or pair share that addresses the question “Why is free speech important?” or “Why did the Founders list it first?” This is followed by an activity in which we look at the specific language of the First Amendment with a focus on the word “abridge”. We then look at some summaries of previous court cases that are relevant to the case they will be ruling upon. I then introduce the simulated case and lead a class discussion about the case. Students begin taking notes in their packets. Students then view the 60 Minutes video and continue taking notes about evidence on both sides of the case. Students then write their own opinions. Next, they meet in small groups to share, and then vote on a group decision. Since there are nine groups, each symbolizes one Supreme Court justice. We discuss the vote and “next steps” once the “court” has ruled.
