Yesterday was a discussion of the SCOTUS and a lesson about how they interpret the US Constitution. We reviewed the structure of Article 3, the courts within it, and what the SCOTUS does. We then compared the 4 different ways the Justices make decisions on the court:
- Interpret the literal meaning of the Constitution.
- Interpret what the framers of the USC intended.
- Consider the the social values of our time.
- Reinforce the principles of constitution-based law.
Today we’ll use an example with the 2nd Amendment to get more in-depth.
We’ll also use this worksheet to continue to build an understanding of how our government is organized.
