2012 Supreme Court Summer Institute participants
June 13, 2013
Street Law is excited to embark on its 19th Supreme Court Summer Institute for Teachers! This year 60 teachers from 33 states are attending the Institute to improve the way they teach about the highest court in the United States.
Participating teachers will learn about the history of the Supreme Court, how a case gets to the Supreme Court, the nominations process, approaches to constitutional interpretation, and a selection of cases from the 2012–2013 term. Teachers will leave the Institute proficient in a variety of interactive strategies to teach students about the Court and its cases and access to a multitude of print, online, and video media and curricula about the Court.
Street Law implements the Institute with the support of the Supreme Court Historical Society, which gives teachers behind-the-scenes access to the Court. The sessions are facilitated by Street Law staff and noteworthy Supreme Court experts. This year’s session topics and resource people include the following:
This year teachers will extensively learn about the following cases from this term:
Teachers will attend decisions at the Court and could witness history if Fisher v. University of Texas, Shelby County v. Holder, Hollingsworth v. Perry, or U.S. v. Windsor are announced.
