Pickering v. Board of Education, 88 S.Ct. 1731 (1968)
- Active Learning Discussion
Read the assigned case. Before you read the courtâ€™s decision determine how you would find if you were the judge. Write a discussion post based on your decision. After your post, go back in the case. Were you correct? Did the court find the way you thought they would find? Did they do so for the same reasons? Post a reflective post on your analysis of the case versus the courtâ€™s analysis.
You must read at least three other studentsâ€™ reviews and comment. Your replies must be no less than 100 words each.
- Students will brief all assigned cases for the module in which they are assigned. The case briefs are to be the studentâ€™s own work. The learning process takes place with the student reading, analyzing, and summarizing the facts and issues in a case; copying someone elseâ€™s work is not part of the learning process. However, students may consult with each other, discuss cases, and use the product of those discussions to write their briefs.
- Your classmates will depend on you to write a thorough, accurate brief of the case(s) assigned. You, in turn, will rely on your classmates to do the same for their cases.
- A copy of your brief will be posted in this moduleâ€™s Case Brief Discussion board.
- Be prepared to explain, justify, or dissent from your assigned case, as the instructor and/or classmates may query you about the case.
