11. Important Supreme Court cases.

Here’s a link to a list of important Supreme Court cases. The Bill of Rights Institute has developed lesson plans for each of the cases, and they are pretty amazing.

These lessons are all verbal and written – they require the students to look at a brief history of the facts of the case, Constitutional arguments on both sides, how the court ruled, and then there are questions to answer.

The great thing is that each of these lessons takes about 20 minutes – maybe 30 if you have slower readers. So you can pick a few cases to illustrate a point and use them. You don’t have to do them all, but they are amazing.
