This lesson plan provides teachers with a creative way to teach what can be a dry topic. The topic of Marbury v. Madison is incredibly important, yet it rarely understood clearly by students. As a result of this confusion, I've designed a simple little skit that lays out the major events. Characters include a Narrator, William Marbury, Anne Marbury, John Marshall, James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and Joseph Story.
The play is based on the basic facts of the case, although I didn't rely on actual dialogue. I've added in some fun little jokes that I know your students will enjoy (as I've been teaching these grades for a long time, I know what students will find funny). My students and I had bunches of fun acting this out in class today.
This lesson plan is linked with NYS Social Studies standards, however, I'm sure you could add your own. It includes a 1 page lesson plan, a 2 page historical background, a 4 page script, and a short exit ticket to check for understanding.
The zip file included a PDF version, a word document and a link to a Google Slides version for easy editing.
