In this fast-paced and fun session, Caroline Fredrickson, one of the legal scholars behind the National Constitution Center’s NEW Supreme Court Case Library, joins Chief Learning Officer Kerry Sautner to review the top 15 Supreme Court cases from a typical course of study for an AP Government class. This class helps students better understand these landmark Supreme Court cases and the U.S. Constitution’s foundational principles. Cases include McCulloch v. Maryland (1819), Engel v. Vitale (1962), Schenck v. United States (1919), Gideon v. Wainwright (1963), Baker v. Carr (1963), and 10 more canonical cases. This is a great session for middle school students to preview and examine the Supreme Court cases to encourage further study of government.
Caroline Fredrickson is the Distinguished Visitor from Practice at Georgetown Law, Senior Fellow at Brennan Center for Justice, and the author of La Cour Suprême, Le Pouvoir Suprême; The Democracy Fix; Under the Bus; and The AOC Way.
