The 2017 calendar explores turning points in American history with fifteen landmark Supreme Court cases. It also celebrates your favorite civic holidays and historical milestones by highlighting events, activities, lesson plans, and resources available at the museum or for use in your classroom.
Using video clips from the Landmark Supreme Court Cases series, a partnership between C-SPAN and the National Constitution Center, students will research and role-play to better understand the legal, social, and economic factors relating to--and implications of--the majority and dissenting opinions in this infamous case.
This lesson builds student understanding of the relationships between the United States’ founding
