Lesson Plan

Description:

One of Americans' most cherished freedoms is the free exercise of religion. In a nation where people of many faiths live side-by-side, the First Amendment's free exercise clause protects individuals from government interference in the practicing of their faith. The government cannot target laws at specific religious practices or place undue burdens on its citizens' worship. This lesson explores the free exercise clause and the many questions that arise from its enforcement.
