All About the Supreme Court


This is a collection of resources that support teaching and learning about the US Supreme Court. 

Craig Benzine talks about what happens when a case makes it to the Supreme Court of the United States (or the SCOTUS). We're going to focus on court procedure today. We talk about how to petition to get your case heard, how written arguments, or briefs, are made, what actually happens on the courtroom floor, and of course the variety of ways the SCOTUS issues opinions on cases.

There are two basic ways of approaching reading the Constitution; strict and loose. Both are given props in this video, so whoever your favorite founding father peeps are, something in here should give you a smile. Of course some might make you mad, but understanding different perspectives in the key to understanding the kingdom.
