Product Description

Use this lesson to bring the Supreme Court and Constitutional Amendments to life by students role playing the Supreme Court justices and deciding on real-life Supreme Court cases. Students read the case, discuss in groups and write their opinion on the case on how the court should vote. After students give their decision, the instructor shares official Supreme Court opinions and discusses what the law of the land is based on the Supreme Court's opinion. This lesson is great for in-class debates and discussions on Constitutional Law & Amendment rights in schools. This lesson is interesting and relevant to students because it uses 9-11, the Patriot Act and Supreme Court to look at the 4th, 6th, and 14th Amendments. Put critical thinking skills and take students to the top of blooms when analyzing these cases. 

The lesson includes 6 Supreme Court case summaries and results and teaching strategies on how to run the lesson. 

Cases that involve the following:

Marbury vs. Madison

Gitlow vs. NY

Giddeon vs. Wainwright

Hamdi vs. Rumsfeld

Boumediene vs. Bush

Carpenter vs. U.S.

Topics

Edward Snowden

Civil Liberties

Bill of Rights

4th Amendment

6th Amendment

14th Amendment

Exclusionary Rule

Incorporation

and much more


This has become the best way for me to introduce and cover civil liberties, Constitutional rights and the Bill of Rights. I recommend buying 9-11 & Civil Liberties Unit with over 10 assignments, notes and assessments based around 9-11 and the government. I use these cases as bell ringers daily in the 9-11 unit. Would work well as a one day government lesson on how 9-11 impacted the civil liberties. Start the year off by engaging your kids in their government.
