Classifying Arguments is a SCOTUS case study strategy in which students are given arguments from each side of a case and tasked with identifying whether each argument supports the petitioner or the respondent.
In this classroom-ready activity, students will examine arguments from Baker v. Carr, a case that asks: Do federal courts have the power to decide cases about the apportionment of population into state legislative districts? An answer key is also available for download.
