Spectator: First Amendment/Freedom of Speech

1. Read about the First Amendment. What does it protect? How does it apply to journalism?

2. Read both cases: Tinker v. Des Moines and Hazelwood v. Kuhlmeier. Summarize what precedent they set and how they might apply to newspapers, specifically school publications, today. Be prepared to discuss.

3. When you’re done, you can get to work making changes I edited on your 9/11 story packages. If you are Malindi/Maisy or a third year, this is just as much your responsibility. They should be perfect when resubmitted.

Tomorrow, we will continue work with InDesign and Photoshop. We are brainstorming on Tuesday of next week for the October issue. You must have two article ideas with an angle and section in mind.
