First Amendment 3: Political Speech Example of Student Created Candidate Advertisement

3:33

Students at Bayless High School share a political advertisement they created for John Adams’ campaign in the 1800 election.  Former Missouri Governor Bob Holden and Jack Oliver, former chairman of the Republican National Committee, offer their responses to the ad and evaluate its effectiveness as an example of political speech.

This video was created by students at Bayless High School.  Interested in sending us a video one or more of your students created for possible publication on the Educate.Today website?  Just let us know of your interest by completing the Typeform questionnaire available here.  We’ll get back in touch with more details about the process for submission.
