Relating Projects to Student Interest

  1. 1.  This is just a simple example of how we can make assignments more relative to student interests.  All elements of the supreme court case unit are covered and students are able to open up and have a little fun. Ultimately, students will retain this information much longer than the more conventional way.  It is important that we constantly think of assignments that are informative as well as fun so that we do not lose the interest of our students.

  5. 5.  T.L.O. is a fourteen year old girl accused of smoking in the girls’ bathroom at her high school.  Since smoking was a violation of school rules, she was sent to the Assistant Vice Principal’s office.  The Assistant Vice Principal searched her bag and found marijuana and other drug equipment such as a pipe, plastic bags, a large amount of money, the names of two students who owed her money, and letters that implicated T.L.O. in marijuana dealing.
  6. 6.  T.L.O thought that the searching of her bag violated her Fourth amendment rights.  Since the Fourth Amendment protects a citizen against unreasonable searches and seizures, she thought that the search of her bag was unreasonable.
  7. 7.  The final vote was 6 to 3, in favor of New Jersey.  The Court decided that the search did not violate her amendment rights.  Suspicion was aroused due to the presence of rolling papers, commonly used for smoking marijuana, in her purse so the search was reasonable.
  8. 8.  The Court ruled that school officials do not have to have a probable cause to conduct searches.  Also, the Court ruled that officials are allowed to search a student as long as “there are reasonable grounds for suspecting that the search will turn up evidence that the student has violated/is violating a law or school rule.”
  9. 9.  Post TLO ruling Further RulingFurther Ruling This allows school officials to act as a parent or guardian allowing the search and seizure of student property based off of suspicion due to supreme courts ruling in T.L.O vs. New Jersey. Related Sources:
