What's the best way to get a teenager interested in learning about the Supreme Court? Put 'em on the docket!
This project looks at 10 United States Supreme Court cases that have every teenager's favorite topic: other teenagers. It is a highly motivating topic and gives you the opportunity to have students examine the nuances and purpose of the judicial system. The project culminates in a trifold presentation and I have included the model that you can make and students can follow.
I designed this project for a course on Government, but it could also be used for U.S. history as well, and the project's theme could be adapted based on your learning objectives.
