Product Description
My goal here was to combine the procedures and powers in the Supreme Court with recent changes within it, and the increased politicization that has occurred there (or some might argue has always existed). I searched hard for clips on-line and combined the five of them onto a two pg. worksheet with the links for each section. I was careful to try and use recent, reputable educational and news sources which included PBS Crash Course, News Hour, VOX, and CNN. Note, a couple of the clips come from YouTube (in case your school has YouTube blocked), but you might also find them in the actual news source. I went ahead and downloaded the full clips and posted them in Google Classroom for my students, but again, you could always just have them go directly to the links I've embedded onto the document. What I like about these clips is that they not only outline procedures and powers of the Court, but also paint a picture of recent cases and the death, retirement, appointment, and holds on the appointees and how that shows a struggle by the parties for capturing the upper hand of the third branch. Altogether the clips are 28 min., but my students took a full period with stopping, rewinding, and writing.
