This week in class, we’re reading "Students Identify With 50-Year-Old Supreme Court Case" by Nina Totenberg.

In the informational text “Students Identify With 50-Year-Old Supreme Court Case,” Nina Totenberg discusses a re-enactment of a court case that teaches students about their right to freedom of speech on school grounds.

"How has America changed over time?", "What is the goal of education?", and "How do people create change?"
