Students discuss five court cases in history that dealt with the freedom of religion and choice.  In this historical lesson plan, students get into small groups and read a synopsis of their assigned case then develop ideas on how  to role play the court case for the class.  The class will summarize the case through discussion then reflect on each case to determine if similar decisions would be made by the Supreme Court Justices today.

Lesson Planet has taken the stress away of trying to come up with an interesting lesson that hooks the students. This is important for a rookie teacher.
