The Assignment

You will study a Supreme Court case which tested the First or Fourth Amendment to the Constitution.  (The first ten amendments to the Constitution make up the "Bill of Rights.")

The First Amendment:  Guarantees freedom of speech, press, religion, assembly and petition.

The Fourth Amendment states: Guarantees freedom from unreasonable search and seizure.  Law enforcement needs probable cause and a warrant to search you or your belongings.  


There are two parts to the assignment:

1. You will create a fake "Facebook" page for the case using a Google Slide.  

2. You will use a Google Doc to summarize the case.

Both of these files will save to your Google Drive.  You will turn in both parts to Google Classroom.
