New Installment of "Teaching the JAH": "Flaunting the Freak Flag: Karr v. Schmidt and the Great Hair Debate in American High Schools, 1965-1975," by Gael Graham
The Journal of American History is pleased to announce a new installment of its "Teaching the JAH," featuring Gael Graham's article, "Flaunting the Freak Flag: Karr v. Schmidt and the Great Hair Debate in American High Schools, 1965-1975."
This installment gives students the opportunity to explore the legal issues of the Karr v. Schmidt case as well as the broader question of high school student rights. The exercises included in this installment draw on a variety of documentary sources, including student dress codes, student declarations of rights, court cases, and letters to newspaper editors.
"Teaching the JAH" uses online tools to bridge the gap between scholarly publishing and the practice of classroom teaching. The project delivers "teaching packages," each of which features an article from the print journal, along with supporting source materials that demonstrate how it might be used in the U.S. history classroom.
