JANUARY 15:  Introductory Matters, Overview, and the First Amendment. 

 

Reading:   pp. 1-43 in the We the Students book; also review for general background the Tinker/Frasier/Frederick line of cases in your old Con Law casebook (pp. 1576-1596  in Chemerinsky (3d ed.)).  Consider what other kinds of issues that might arise today out of these cases (e.g., wearing t-shirts with messages?  Facebook postings that criticize the teachers?)

 

Also familiarize yourself with the Marshall Brennan website, which includes teaching materials you can adapt for your classes. You can access the materials by going to the Marshall-Brennan web site (www.wcl.american.edu/marshallbrennan); click on  “curricular materials.;” when prompted, enter username: mbdocs and password: mbdownload.
