Lesson 9 - The Market Goes to Court: Key Economic Cases and the United States Supreme Court
The students participate in a reader's theater activity. This activity conveys information about the role of the Supreme Court, and it introduces four types of economic cases heard by the Court. Then the students read four case studies (one of each type) and work in small groups to complete a data chart summarizing the four types of economic cases. This lesson can serve as a review/extension activity for a unit on the U.S. Supreme Court.
