Product Description
This is a great, 1-page reading on the US Supreme Court's role in civil rights and how it has evolved over time. It begins by explaining the court's role in protecting the rights granted by the Constitution and how it can declare an act unconstitutional.

The article then covers key Civil Rights cases in the Court's history, including Plessy v. Ferguson, Brown v. Board of Ed., Bailey v. Patterson, Loving v. Virginia, and Roe v. Wade.

Lastly, the article also details how the court's membership has changed over time. The appointments of Thurgood Marshall, Sandra Day-O'Connor, and Sonia Sotomoyaor are all highlighted as increasing the Court's diversity.

Eight reading comprehension questions help students understand the reading and share their own opinions on important cases. An answer key for this is included for your convenience.

This product can also be downloaded as part of the larger Civil Rights Movement Resource Bundle which includes 12 additional resources for your Civil Rights Movement unit!
