This year, Street Law, Inc. hosted its second annual Supreme Court Lesson Plan Contest in honor of Supreme Court Week, marking the start of the 2010-11 U.S. Supreme Court Term.
The winning lesson plan comes from Brian Zeleny, a teacher at Towson High School, in Towson, MD.
Brian's lesson plan focuses on judicial decision making, precedent, and Texas v. Johnson. Students contemplate the ways judges decide cases, listen to excerpts of the oral arguments in Texas v. Johnson, and then act as justices to decide the case. They next day, they are required to apply a decision in Texas v. Johnson to a new fictional case that has come before the Court.
For submitting the winning lesson plan, Brian receives a Street Law Supreme Court gift pack, including Street Law’s Classroom Guide to Mock Trials and Moot Courts, May It Amuse the Court: Editorial Cartoons of the Supreme Court and Constitution, Street Law merchandise, and more.
