iCivics: Argument Wars

Do your students want to argue? Are you looking for a way to steer them to voice their opinions about issues that truly matter? In Argument Wars, your students will try out their persuasive abilities by arguing in real Supreme Court cases. Students will analyze the Constitution and its Amendments to determine the best evidence to defeat their competition. Students will choose their state and various state laws that are applicable may be used, too. The following court cases may be used in the simulations: Bond v. United States, Brown v. Board of Education, Gideon v. Wainwright, Hazelwood v. Kuhlmeier, In Re Gault, Miranda v. Arizona, New Jersey v. T.L.O., Snyder v. Phelps produced in cooperation with the Harlan Insitute, and Texas v. Johnson.
