    How Judges Interpret the Constitution

    Posted by Ken Boesch on Oct 28th 2021

    I have used various portions of this lesson for years now. The kids walk away with a better understanding of the differences between Strict and Loose Construction of the Constitution. Keep up the good work!

    I was short on time so I only used the video and video guide and the handout over Roper v. Simmons. This lesson was everything I was looking for... students got a lot out of this and it stuck with them.
