Does the precedent set in Tinker v. Des Moines apply to student speech that occurs off campus? This activity includes a deliberation reading plus accompanying handouts to give students additional information on the topic and to guide them through the deliberation process from planning to reflection.  

Deliberation teaches people how to discuss controversial issues by carefully considering multiple perspectives and searching for consensus. In preparation for deliberations, all participants read common, balanced background information on the issue. During the discourse, they offer arguments for each position on a contested public issue, first drawing from the text and then bringing in their own experiences.
