Two articles in this instructional newsletter elucidate rulings by the United States Supreme Court, Circuit Court of Appeals, and District Courts affecting state sponsored school prayer: (1) "First Amendment Prayer Pendulum"; (2) "First Amendment. Rosenberger v University of Virginia." The newsletter provides the facts of the cases, legal precedents, arguments presented by both sides, significance of the decisions, as well as suggestions for appropriate teaching methods. Articles cover the First Amendment issues of school prayer and public funding for student religious magazines through student activities fees. Teaching strategies for examining both of these issues, including student handouts, are provided. (LH)
