Down for the Count?

The New York Times article “Supreme Court, Split 5-4, Halts Florida Count in Blow to Gore” provides the opening to an assessment of the United States Supreme Court decision in the case of the 2000 presidential election. Assuming the persona of a Supreme Court judge, a presidential candidate, or a voter, class members assess the text of the ruling. Extension activities, a resource list, and links are included in this very detailed lesson.
