The Harlan Institute launched FantasySCOTUS.org about two weeks ago. We have nearly 50 classes across the country signed up, and hundreds of kids playing the game. One of the coolest features of FantasySCOTUS is the class blogs. In addition to making predictions, students are asked to prepare analytical responses to a series of questions we posed in our lesson plans about each case. Here are two such great posts on Snyder v. Phelps (see here and here). I am seriously kvelling.
When we started this project, we had the simple, yet ambitious goal to teach students about the Supreme Court and raise awareness about the Constitution. Reading these blog posts makes it all worth it. I am so happy to be part of such a wonderful program, and I can’t wait to help spread the message. Please check out our web site, and consider making a donation, however small. We offer all of our services to students at no cost, and are funded solely by private donations. Many thanks.
