In 1977, the American Nazi party petitioned to hold a march in Skokie, Ill., a Chicago suburb with a population that was 30 percent Jewish, including a large number of Holocaust survivors. This battle pitting First Amendment rights of the Nazis versus the rights of the Jewish citizens not to have to have the symbols of their oppression waved in front of their faces was examined in the 1981 TV movie, "Skokie." After watching this movie and doing research in the computer lab, students in Mr. Turner's Communication Arts and Advanced Communication Arts held their own courtroom hearings and then wrote opinion papers on the topic.
