Students will discuss the question: When does the First Amendment allow the government to limit speech? By reading essays from the Interactive Constitution, a free online resource with essays by leading scholars from both sides of the political spectrum, and weighing their own opinions on limitations of speech, students will develop their constitutional thinking skills and civil dialogue skills in this lesson. After researching the topic, students will carry out a Harkness-style discussion to help answer the question on free speech limitations.
