Hudson High School is a First Amendment School.
This means, among other things, that every year they have a “First Amendment Day,” Because I’m from Hudson and because of my blogging at Smart Mass, I have been asked to speak at our High School for an hour or so and possibly facilitate a discussion regarding the first amendment.
While some people freak out at the idea of public speaking, I am quite comfortable with it – I have been a management trainer for about 12 years and I love to “entertain.”
I have been offered the opportuntity to speak to an audience of twenty-five to 150 people. I get to pick the audience size and I get to pick the topic. I’m thinking I’ll go for the big room…
But, I need some help, I am far from expert on the First Amendment and it is a pretty broad subject. I need to narrow things down a bit. What should I speak about? Can you brainstorm with me?
If you had an hour to speak to 150 high school students about the First Amendment, what would you talk about?
