PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

As we all know, the Common Core demands a great deal more from teachers -- not least, the use of complex texts that challenge students to closely read for understanding. The judicial opinion in the landmark Supreme Court Case Marbury v. Madison is an example of such a text, and now with this teaching packet, teachers can easily implement a close reading of it in English or history classes.

This packet includes:
--Detailed background information, including fun facts, to help teachers gain a thorough understanding of the court case Marbury v. Madison
--Step by step teaching procedure to guide the class through a "first read," "second read," and "third read."
--Annotation guide appropriate for secondary student use -- illustrated, but not too cute...
--One-page excerpt of the Marbury v. Madison court decision -- just enough extracted that students can complete the close reading in a reasonable time!
--Two-page sheet of complex, thought-provoking text-dependent questions that students complete during their "third read" through the text
--Detailed answer key
--Full opinion of the court included for context and/or teacher reference


All questions in this packet are free-response, asking students to compose answers at least a paragraph in length


Making the Common Core more accessible is easy with the right materials!
