Today class, we are going to learn about on of the amendments from the Bill of Rights, the First Amendment. For starters the first amendment has the freedom of speech, religion, assemble, press and petition. The first thing that we are going to be learning about is the freedom of speech.
Well Shelby, the main purpose of this law is so you have the right to stand up in my class right now and speak and say whatever you want. There is a catch though, if you say something rude or uncalled for you would have to be most likely punished for it.
Why did we make this law in the first place?
The second one that we are going to talk about is the freedom of religion. The reason why we have the freedom of religion is so we can choose whether or not if we want to study one religion or the other, like how you can choose if you want to be jewish or not. Next is the freedom of assembly.
The freedom of assembly gives everyone of us the right to have a get together and have meetings, parties, and conventions. The reason why this is so important, is so we can actually have all of these things, and talk to just catch up with each other. If you think about it even a pep rally is related to this amendment! Trenton would you like to describe the next right?
Excellent job Trenton!
The next right is about press. Press is about how you have the right to print and publish things. For example next time you read the newspaper or even a magazine just know that it is involved with the first amendment.
Now the last Right is petition which means you have the right to stand up and speak out for injustices and that you can also change them as well. An example of this right is that you can gather signatures for a cause or how you can present requests to the government without punishment. Now that we have talked about all of these precedents I hope that next time you yell something or even have a little ceremony that those couldn't be happening without the first amendment.
