Kennedy v. Bremerton was our spring 2022 SCOTUS in the Classroom case.  

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.

    My students enjoy following current cases before the Court, evaluating the case law and rendering their decision before they hear the Court's decision. This case summary has been an amazing resource to accomplish this task with my students.
