From iCivics’ Landmark Library

Students will:

  • Define “judicial review” and describe its importance.
  • Identify the main arguments put forth in the case.
  • Describe the Supreme Court’s decision and analysis.
  • Identify the impact of the Court’s decision on the judicial branch.
  • Identify ways Congress can respond when the Supreme Court strikes down a law.

Activity: Students look at four laws the Supreme Court has struck down and guess what happened next – did Congress change the law, repeal the law and pass a new one, drop the subject, or amend the Constitution?

“This library of mini-lessons targets a variety of landmark cases from the United States Supreme Court. Each mini-lesson includes a one-page reading and a one-page activity, and is appropriate for a variety of uses. Unlike the iCivics lesson plans, these mini-lessons are designed for students to complete independently without the need for teacher direction. However, they also make great teacher-directed lessons or even class conversation-starters, and multiple mini-lessons can be combined to make a longer lesson.”
