I found student-generated Power Points for court cases got boring, so after watching the Golden Globes, I thought, "Why not have them act?" I included what I think are 20 of the most crucial court cases from the years, and students are paired up (Cut out the slips of paper and have them draw from a hat). This means as long as you have under 40 kids, you can choose which cases you want. 2-3 minute skits with a strict format that includes intro, court arguments, etc... The kids bring in props (extra credit) and seem to respond well to this. One day to create skits and about two more for the performances. Note: Mapp v. Ohio deals with some with some racy subject matter- but most of my 12th graders have handled it professionally. Hey, it's part of the curriculum, but if you choose to cut one out, maybe axe that one.
