Out of Order: Stories from the History of the Supreme Court: Wanted: Supreme Court Judges
Students will read portions of Out of Order: Stories from the History of the Supreme Court by Sandra Day O'Connor. After having interactive discussions regarding the manner, in which the text described how judges were appointed, their tenure, and salaries, students will demonstrate their new knowledge by creating a “Supreme Jobs” job announcement.
There are three lessons that can be used to complement a study of Out of Order: Stories from the History of the Supreme Court and help students take a new perspective by merging ELA skills with civics knowledge.
