The Sunday paper has been filled with back-to-school ads for the past two weeks. While it is still a bit early to declare this summer done, it IS a great time for us to remind teachers of the many educational resources available from the Society.

Chief among these is the week-long teaching unit on the Verdict of History, the most significant Michigan Supreme Court opinions from the first two centuries of the Court. The Verdict of History lesson plans profile seven of the 20 top cases, asking students to think about how they would decide if they were the justice. The lesson plans include instruction on legal brief writing and a mini-moot court activity.

All of which have been designed to make the job of educators easier this fall so they can continue to enjoy summer now.
