Why Lesson Planet?
Present your seniors with a controversial topic while studying the first amendment: pornography. This multi-layer resource has scholars writing a pros and cons research paper. They also attend a city council meeting to prepare for an in-class simulated city council meeting, discussing a new city ordinance limiting pornography. The class is split into 5 groups: 2 anti-ordinance groups, 2 pro-ordinance, and council members. Consider giving the presiding officer more of a role.
