Product Description
Introduce students to the idea of judicial activism in the Warren Court with the cases Brown vs. Board, a selection of cases that separated church and state, and a selection of cases that expanded the rights of the accused. This lesson does NOT focus on Brown vs. Board, although it does use it as an example of judicial activism in the introduction. Next, students complete a series of documents that explain the impact of Warren's judicial activism related to the separation of church and state and increasing rights of the accused. These documents include an excerpt from JFK, articles about the impact of the cases, a political cartoon, and an article from 2017 about a man who ran over a Ten Commandments monument. Students use these documents to determine if Warren's judicial activism was successful.
