I think that's a fabulous idea! That's what really struck me about the
structure of that lesson. Rather then just debate (which can get really messy),
she had lawyers for and against and then the students, via justices, deciding
which argument was more compelling, in addition to its constitutionality.
When we approach some of the issues going forward I'm definitely going to
employ that format.
Having the Justices defend their decisions would make it even better.
