This project was created for Criminal Justice students, but can be used in a Civics or Government class. Students are to create a fictional Supreme Court case that would have an impact on police investigations. This is a more difficult and higher-order thinking project, but it can help students gain some great skills and demonstrate their understanding of how Supreme Court decisions impact the criminal justice process.
An example of how the project may look is on the second page.
If you choose to allow your students to work on this in class, it should take approximately 4-5 school days (for 45 minute classes).
This project could be used in an introductory college course on constitutional law and/or criminal justice and easily be modified to your standards. :)
