In 2018 the College Board redesigned the AP U.S. Government and Politics course and exam. One of the most significant revisions was the addition of a list of Supreme Court cases students are required to know in depth. This knowledge is assessed in the exam through a free response question (FRQ) that requires students to compare the facts, issue, arguments, or decisions in one of the required case to a non-required case. There may be qualitative analysis and comparison multiple choice questions that require students to compare Supreme Court cases as well. 

To aid teachers in preparing their students to respond successfully to these questions, Street Law has compiled this list of its case summaries and other resources that can be used to teach about comparison cases to the required cases. Note that this is not an exhaustive list—it only includes comparison cases that exist in Street Law’s Resource Library.
