The Supreme Court Historical Society was founded in 1974 to improve public understanding of the Court, the Constitution, and the Judiciary. In January 2022, the Supreme Court Historical Society launched a new lecture series focused on Civics and American Democracy. The virtual lectures feature leading experts focused on the dangers of foreign disinformation campaigns and the importance of an independent federal judiciary.
To complement these lectures and to make them accessible in the classroom for high school students, the Society has developed two free lesson plans that are now available on the Society’s website: “Protecting the Independence of the Judiciary from Disinformation” and “Interactions Between the Branches.” Teachers will also find classroom resources focusing on “Supreme Court Cases for and About Students” and “Decisions & Women’s Rights – Milestones in Equality.”
