About the Author:

Jamin B. Raskin is professor of constitutional law and the First Amendment at American University Washington College of Law and founder of its Marshall-Brennan Fellows Program, which places law students in public high schools to teach the We the Students constitutional literacy course. A former assistant attorney general for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Raskin is an active public interest lawyer, defending the rights of political expression and participation for both adults and young people. He is also the author of Overruling Democracy (2003) and dozens of law review articles, op-eds, and essays on constitutional law.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 9 Up—Teens know that the right to free speech is covered in the First Amendment—but what does that mean to them? Raskin, a constitutional law professor, puts that right, along with several others, into context, highlighting Supreme Court cases that affect students and schools. The book is organized into 10 chapters, opening with a brief overview of what the Constitution is and what it does before discussing free speech, censorship, religion, property searches, discipline, discrimination, harassment, and disabilities. Each chapter offers brief commentaries about cases that were argued before the justices and the text of the Court's decision (edited for brevity and clarity). In most instances, excerpts from the dissenting opinions follow the majority decision, presenting a balanced view of how the ruling was arrived at. Between the cases are exercises and discussion questions for students to further explore what they've learned. Sidebars provide definitions of legal terms and biographical information on some of the Supreme Court Justices. Appendixes include the full text of the Constitution and amendments and a comprehensive index. The text is well organized, easy to understand, and, most importantly, up-to-date. Raskin references decisions and incidents that occurred as recently as late 2007, illustrating how decisions of the past are being supported—or revisited—today. The writing is engaging and will spark students' curiosity about these issues. This excellent resource should be in all government classrooms.—Brandy Danner, Wilmington Memorial Library, MA
