The consolidated cases of Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia, and Altitude Express, Inc. v. Zarda were our fall 2019 SCOTUS in the Classroom cases.  

Each SCOTUS Term, Street Law selects the most classroom-relevant, student-friendly cases as our SCOTUS in the Classroom cases. Teachers are encouraged to hold moot courts or mini-moot courts of the case the same weeks that the Supreme Court hears arguments, giving students the opportunity to follow discussion and analysis in the news and listen to or read a transcript of the actual oral arguments at the Court.
