This work is for ages 10 and up. This lively and comprehensive
activity book teaches young readers everything they need to know
about the nation's highest court. Organized around keystones of the
Constitution - including free speech, freedom of religion, civil
rights, criminal justice, and property rights - the book juxtaposes
historical cases with similar current cases. Presented with
opinions from both sides of the court cases, readers can make up
their own minds on where they stand on the important issues that
have evolved in the Court over the past 200 years. Interviews with
prominent politicians, high-court lawyers, and those involved with
landmark decisions - including Ralph Nader, Rudolph Guiliani, Mario
Cuomo, and Arlen Specter - show the personal impact and
far-reaching consequences of the decisions. Fourteen engaging
classroom-oriented activities involving violations of civil rights,
exercises of free speech, and selecting a classroom Supreme Court
bring the issues and cases to life. The first 15 amendments to the
Constitution and a glossary of legal terms are also included.
