Constitutional Issues and Iowa.
Gore, Deborah, Ed.
Goldfinch, v8 n3 Feb 1987
Important constitutional issues are presented in a manner appropriate for use in the classroom. Case studies and events from the history of Iowa are used to illuminate the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Freedom of expression and students' rights are discussed in "The Black Armband Case"; free exercise of religion as won by the Iowa's Amish is described in "Religious Rights"; and the women's suffrage movement as it occurred in Iowa is outlined in "Amending the Constitution: Woman Suffrage." A play on equality of education which can be read or performed by students is included. There are also selections discussing the development and evolution of both the United States Constitution and the Constitution of Iowa. (SM)
