Many high school students do not understand the different types and functions of their state court systems. In my Criminal Law class, I created a webquest to have them navigate the Massachusetts and Federal court systems.
The objective is for them to create a chart including information such as: A description of the functions of each of the courts and what kinds of cases they hear, How many justices/judges and how they are given the job, etc.
