Student Perspectives: Kristen Borges's students

The students whose interview comments are excerpted here were enrolled in a ninth-grade civics class at Southwest High School in Minneapolis, Minnesota, when this program was videotaped. Here they discuss their experiences role-playing as lawyers and Supreme Court Justices in a mock trial of a Supreme Court case dealing with the First Amendment and the impact their teacher’s constructivist methodologies have had on their level of interest and learning.
