Lesson plans

In 2007, Street Law, Inc. partnered with PBS affiliate Thirteen/WNET New York.  The station created a documentary series—The Supreme Court— about the history and impact of the Supreme Court of the United States.  Street Law developed educational materials to accompany the film including lesson plans, a discussion guide, and resources/links for educators.
