CONSTITUTIONAL LAW AND STUDENT CIVIL LIBERTIES
Designed to develop analytical-reading, critical-thinking, and persuasive-writing skills, the book’s chapters focus on topics such as students’ rights to free speech, searches and seizures in schools, and the Eighth Amendment and the juvenile justice system. Several examples of cases related to the topic (including excerpts from justices’ opinions) are provided, and the Constitutional issues involved are explained. Each case analysis is followed by skill-based exercises such as short-answer questions, hypothetical cases, preparing legal arguments, creating flowcharts, and more. Among the cases: Tinker v. Des Moines, New Jersey v. TLO, Vernonia School District v. Acton, Brown v. Board, Bethel School District v. Fraser.
