 A Lesson That Will Get Kids Debating!

This WWI episode teaches Eugene Deb's famed Canton, Ohio Speech that got him arrested for violating the Espionage and Sedition Acts.  It teaches Debs' personal story and what led him to deliver that impassioned speech that day, knowing the government was out to arrest him.  It also unpacks the history surrounding that speech to teach how the war was impacting Americans on the homefront and especially 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.
