Choose one of the free speech cases mentioned in “The Coddling of the American Mind” and do some additional research on it. Remember to quote the article and summarize the case effectively.
Make sure to answer these questions:
What is the free speech issue? What are the charges/complaints? Write about your reaction to these policies. Do you think the decisions were fair? Why or why not?
Be prepared to present on this case in class. You should be able to explain what the micro-aggression or “trigger” was, as well as how it fits into the authors’ argument about “coddling the American Mind.”
Your response should be at least one page long. It should be worked on throughout class and is due at midnight tonight.
