The Supreme Court, recognizing changes in society and technology, has applied the First Amendment's protections in some ways that are broader than ever. Student speech in public schools, however, poses unique questions. This lesson will help students to Understand the operation of the First Amendment in both their school and in the wider context of society and fosters students' appreciation of their rights, preparing them for responsible and effective participation in their school, community, and nation.
