Have students choose three Supreme Court cases from the list below. For each case should research and report the following information:
- When was the case argued?
- What was the question argued in the case?
- When was the case decided?
- What was the Supreme Court’s decision regarding the case?
- Which Supreme Court justice wrote the majority or unanimous opinion? Which justice wrote the dissenting opinion, if any? Which justice wrote the concurring opinion, if any?
