Exploring Enumerated and Implied Powers

This Exploring Enumerated and Implied Powers lesson plan also includes:

Here is a most-impressive resource on implied powers that were established under the Marshall Court. Learners examine the court's interpretation of Article 1 in McCullough vs. Maryland. They also analyze the Constitution in order to see the differences between enumerated and implied powers. There is an excellent worksheet that leads pupils through a writing exercise on these topics embedded in the plan. This is one of the better lessons on law and the courts I have ever seen.
