This reference would be very useful on the whole for a Constitutional Law course at the undergraduate level. Parts of the course would also be great additions for an Introduction to Criminal Justice, and Policing or Police Ethics. Not only is there historcial information, but there is also systems information and court decisions to review, and there are links to interactive exercises and other helpful guides.

I took an introductory course on higher education law earlier this year, and was interested in reviewing material directed at students’ speech rights. As a higher education administration student, I found this website’s use of plain language helpful in developing a practical knowledge of the material. In gaining a working understanding of what constitutes students’ speech rights, I found it easier to identify the nuances that each landmark case brought to bear on the issue, which helped deepen my understanding. To that end, the website’s questions also provided a rigorous examination of the freedoms and limitations associated with student speech rights.

Technical Remarks:

I appreciate the use of photos related to the landmark cases, as the photos seem to enhance the website’s overall appearance and provide additional context for the reading material. I appreciate the quantity and quality links of links available throughout the website, as they provide the user with opportunities to engage in deeper study that is still pertinent to the original material. The website is comprehensible and easy to navigate.

This material offers an abundance of resources to use. The material is very informative, organized and detailed oriented. I plan to use it as complimentary material in my Constitutional Law course.

I really enjoyed this material.  It was very comprehensive and I plan on using it as supplemental material for my Criminal Law and Court Procedures classes.

Though it may be intended for law students, some of the exercises ("So, you want to marry a founding father.") seem to be targeted at high school students. Still, it is a very comprehensive collection of explanations of virtually every aspect of the Constitution and how it is applied. The plain language used makes the explanations especially useful for those sust beginning their study of the law.
