In this activity, students trace how groups throughout the past 150 years of American history have used their First Amendment freedoms to effect change. First, they review the basics of the First Amendment. They next study a set of Newseum case studies profiling groups that have used the First Amendment to protest for change and catalog which freedoms were used and how. Then students work in small groups to write a plan describing how each group could have achieved greater social change, while still using actions protected by the First Amendment.
