Title: FREEDOM OF SPEECH and the FIRST AMENDMENT


1
FREEDOM OF SPEECH and the FIRST AMENDMENT
  • For class 8-346
  • by N. Reed

2
Introduction
  • The controversy about rap music today and the
    question of whether profanity, violence,sexism,
    and racism in rap lyrics are protected by the
    First Amendment is the most explosive issue
    concerning Freedom of Speech today. Young people
    today feel that rap lyrics are legitimate
    expression of their view about life which are
    protected speech in terms of the United States
    Constitution. Others see the sentiment expressed
    in rap music as violation of their rights.
  • What is your view? Are lyrics a freedom of
    speech or a violation of rights

3
Task
You will explore the controversy of rap music and
the
First Amendment. How? Just watch and see!
4
  • 1. You will conduct a survey using
    OpinionPoint.com to analyze how adolescents,
    teenagers, young adults, and adults feel about
    rap lyrics.
  • You will define the following vocabulary words
    survey, analyze, controversy, lyrics, legitimate,
    sentiments

5
Task (continued)
  • Using the information gathered in the survey, you
    will determine if rap lyrics have protection
    under the 1st Amendment.
  • You will use Power Point to create a slide show
    to summarize your conclusions.
  • Ya heard!

  • Students will research and analyze Supreme Court
    decisions involving 1st Amendment cases.
  • http//www.maxwell.syr.edu/plegal/TIPS.htm
  • Students will gather pictures involving the 1st
    Amendment.
  • Students will create survey questions to conduct
    a survey.

7
The Process (continued)
  • Students will use the internet links to gather
    information to support the task.
  • The end for now. Any questions

8
Conclusion
  • You will have learned that although opinions vary
    greatly and the controversy rages on, rappers and
    rap artists are free to express their views.
    Limiting the power to use music, speech, and art
    as self expression is called censorship which
    violates the First Amendment. Perhaps the issue
    of rap lyrics should be a moral question the
    artist must ask themselves.
