Good introduction for the Congressional Hearing
Good introduction for the Congressional Hearing that my students do at the end of the year. It helped them understand part of the process involved in Supreme Court decision. They wanted to hear and learn more after this lesson. It also got them thinking about the fact that you have to look at all sides of an issue, not just the possible obvious one. You definitely need to work further through the process after doing this, but it is a good start.
How I Use It
I would use it as a hook in preparation for our Congressional Hearings. We teach the Constitution through the We the People program. This gives the students some insight into what goes into a Supreme Court decision.
