Students in Mrs. Collins, Mr. Jasman, Mr. Tong and Ms. Webster's class are getting familiar with the first ten amendments as they research how they have impacted various court cases over the years. After completing some research they were to write 2 letters to the editor expressing both sides of the court case related to the amendment they have chosen.
Students also expressed their opinions of various uses of the first amendment through the use of polling software, Socrative. Students chose to agree or disagree with statements and then as a class discussed the results of the class versus results given to the American population. The discussion allowed for students to critically think through the First Amendment and their thoughts about how it should be and is being applied to American life.
