I have some questions about teaching US law at the undergraduate level (not in law school). Are those appropriate here?
I haven't fully formulated any of my questions yet (I need to make sure they are answerable, and not primarily opinion-based), but at the moment I'm contemplating issues related to teaching the basics of free expression in a one-shot class discussion. I took an entire semester-long course on the topic in law school, and am looking for guidance on boiling it down for both non-legal professors and their students. Recommendations for resources would also be welcome, although I'm not sure that's ever on-topic on Stack Exchange.
For background, this lesson will be taught in 1st year seminars by faculty from various academic departments of a private college. The class will be approximately two hours long, must also cover the institution's policies on civil discourse. I'm part of a group working up a lesson plan and instructor's guide for the session. However, I think my question(s) about the 1st Amendment could probably be phrased to be useful for anyone wanting to introduce laypersons to the topic.
I may also have questions in the future about teaching my own, full-length undergraduate law classes; these might be more focused on actual pedagogy of teaching law.
