Supreme Court & Schools - Great for teaching the Judicial Branch!
Do Now, Six Scenarios, and followup questions.
Sample Scenario: You realize that it has been over ten years since the war in Afghanistan began and you think it is about time the troops come home. You point this out to a few of your friends and they agree. You and your friends decided to make little yellow ribbon pins to support the troops coming home. This little idea of yours has really taken off and most students in the school support your cause. News 12 New Jersey even covered the story! Now many students are taking about staging a walkout to support the troops. The principal hears about the walkout and she says that all students wearing yellow ribbon pins be asked to remove them or face suspension. Is this fair? More important, is it legal?
