It can be difficult to find the time to teach in detail about all that we wish to cover with our curriculum. This handout will give your students the opportunity to become familiar with an important Supreme Court case: Marbury v. Madison. This was the first time that the Supreme Court found a law unconstitutional. The reading discusses the background of the case and the Supreme Court's use of judicial review. This can be a class assignment or homework.
Students will read a concise, one page, summary of the background of the case and the Court's ruling. After reading the summary, students will answer 8 questions about the reading.
