Controversial Issues/Free Speech Workshop

November 4 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Two great workshops in one! Looking for strategies to help students work with controversial issues? Ever wonder what speech is protected and what speech is limited? This workshop will help you answer both questions. From mock appellate arguments to Town Halls, from Deliberations and Mock Trials to Legislative Hearings, interactive strategies give your students practice using civil discussion skills to explore multiple viewpoints on current events. Plus, this workshop will explore one of our most important amendments in the Bill of Rights, the First Amendment, helping you gain a better understanding of how the First Amendment functions in practice. This workshop will provide classroom resources, rich discussions, and content. Geared toward middle and high school teachers.
