Clear and Present Danger

Students assume identities of lawmakers, judges, writers, and protestors during times in American history when freedoms of speech and press were limited because country was on the brink of war or fighting one. Students use primary source documents to evaluate issues of freedom of speech and the press versus national security and public safety, and draft new constitutional amendment that clearly defines government's powers in times of national crisis.
