Judicial Learning Center: Landmark Cases
Five fact-filled lessons look at landmark Supreme Court Cases. Young scholars begin their study by examining the importance of these cases, key terms necessary for studying the court cases, and the relationship between court cases and the law. The four cases in the second lesson look at cases related to the First Amendment and freedom of expression in schools, while the third lesson explores cases to privacy and search and seizure in schools. Another lesson revisits Brown v. Board of Education and two other landmark Supreme court cases concerning African Americans' civil rights. The final lesson in the collection provides background information about Marbury v. Madison and two other cases so that scholars can better understand the importance of the concept of judicial review. The lessons are interesting and include interactive quizzes that permit young scholars to self-check their new knowledge.
