The Supreme Court Historical Society offers both students and teachers opportunities to invest in their social studies and civic programs, such as The Supreme Court Summer Institute for Teachers, and a new program, “The Supreme Court and My Hometown,” which will bring young people into courthouses in their communities to study Supreme Court cases that originated in (or near) their hometowns. This new program will also offer students the opportunity to understand the process of the federal judicial system by studying a case from its inception to the dissemination of the Supreme Court’s opinion. Armed with their knowledge of the process and the case, students will be encouraged to create unique learning experiences for their communities. Look for more information as this new youth program unfolds in the coming months.
