Specifically designed for use by students in grades 7 through 12, "Supreme Court Decisions: Scenarios, Simulations, and Activities for Understanding and Evaluating 14 Landmark Court Cases" by academician and curriculum developer Jeffrey D. Stocks introduces the United States Supreme Court and how it makes landmark decisions that has influenced and shaped American public life and government. Through the illustrative use of fourteen actual court cases ranging from Dred Scott v. Sanford that dealt with slavery, to Brown v. Board of Education that dealt with race-based discrimination in education, to Miranda v. Arizona that dealt with the rights of persons accused of crimes, "Supreme Court Decisions" will enable students to gain perspectives of Americans living during historical periods of time, how the United States Constitution has been interpreted to resolve matters in diverse and often complex social issues, how to make predictions and judge a case for themselves through the use of critical and creative thinking. "Supreme Court Decisions" is very strongly recommended for both classroom and home-schooling curriculums.
