What Students Learn

All our videos teach through the power of story to make the history relevant and memorable. In this video-lesson, students learn how Eugene Deb's famed Canton, Ohio Speech got him arrested for violating the Espionage and Sedition Acts. While it focuses on the crackdown on free speech, it also unpacks how the World War I impacted the homefront and how the Committee of Public Information sought to bolster support and control dissent during the war. Students are left considering the line between free speech, national security, and what it means to be a patriot.
✅ The lessons cover state-standards while making sure the content is still interesting.

A Primary Source Investigation Activity

After the video, notes, and quiz, students complete an inquiry activity exploring several documents on the debate between free speech, national security, and sedition during World War I, gather evidence, and decide if Emma Goldman’s speech put the United States in danger. There are supports for diverse learners to get all students thinking critically and deeply about this important issue!
