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 Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Community School District (1969).

Also available for download with this resource is a modified version that may be cut into strips for students to organize the arguments according to persuasiveness.   

This is a middle school-level activity. A high school-level version is also available.
