The cases involve issues that are of high interest to students, such as drug use, sex and censorship, and freedom of speech and thought. The newly revised second edition of We the Students includes: New Supreme Court cases along with a few noteworthy state and federal cases. More examples and exercises to provide readers with a greater understanding of constitutional law in a way in which they can relate and understand. Expert commentary about protecting students from bullying. New or expanded coverage of affirmative action; drug testing; discrimination based on gender, sexual orientation, or citizenship; student disabilities; and religion in school. We the Students is designed for students and teachers in regular and AP social studies, history, journalism, constitutional law, and government classes. The educational emphasis in We the Students is on constitutional knowledge, critical thinking, persuasive argument, and values clarification.;Students will learn the answers to questions such as: Why does the Court decide a case one way rather than the other? Why does law change over time and what makes it change? We the Students includes a bibliography at the end of each chapter and suggestions for further reading.
