Product Description
When searching for resources to help students understand the schools of thought in interpreting the Constitution, I found some that provided an elementary level description, and many that provided law school level descriptions, but couldn't find any in the middle that would work for my middle school and high school students. This lesson is my attempt to bridge the gap in explaining these philosophies through student friendly diction, a sports analogy, and three Supreme Court case studies. A printed note chart of the three case studies is included, and I distribute these to students at the end so their attention can be on the discussion to explore the answers, instead of only frantically writing the answers.
