1st Amendment and Classified Leaks

Lesson Duration

From C-Span Classroom

What is the balance between security and transparency? Students work in small groups to analyze video clips portraying different sides of the issue and deliberate whether or not the media should publish classified information. “Specifically, they will a) understand the history of classified information that has been leaked to the media, b) determine the central idea of primary sources, and c) evaluate the role of the media in politics.”
