The 1st Amendment

Chelsea Olivo, 1ST, 12-11-14

1st Amendment.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishing of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise therefore; or abridging the freedom of speech, or the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Court Case!

A high school student takes stand for free exercise of religion. Bridget Mergens took a case to court to have a bible club in her (public) school. The court established that it didn't violate the 1st amendment. The outcome had an impact on public school and policies throughout the United States.

Bill of Rights Scenario!

Sarah wanted to make a speech about a new protest, but her school principle thought it was unnecessary. Sarah explained to the principle about the 1st amendment and how she had freedom of speech. The principle thought it over and let her speak out. This encouraged others to speak up and not be afraid.
