Description

Overview:
Students will learn the process a case goes through to get to the Supreme Court and why some cases are determined to be landmark cases.  Students will research various landmark cases in history and examine why the case was important and how it relates to the Constitution or one of the Amendments.  The students will then select one of the landmark cases and act it out in class. Students who portray the judges will use their own opinions to determine the case and then the group will discuss if the decision is the same as the original case or if it was different and what significance today's world played in that decision.
