Register for "Supreme Court Cases that Changed America"

March 2, 2024, 8:30 AM ET - 2:15 PM ET | Hosted by: Michigan Firehouse Museum | Ypsilanti, MI | Discussion Leader: Adam Carrington

United States Supreme Court Cases have shaped federal and state government policy in many ways. This seminar explores cases that focus on the Constitution and Federalism, the Constitution and the Commerce Clause, and will include Civil Rights Cases.

This program will be conducted as a discussion, utilizing primary source documents as the only readings, and with the Discussion Leader facilitating the conversation, instead of lecturing or presenting. Registrants, therefore, are highly encouraged to read all the documents in advance and come ready with questions. Teachers will receive a Letter of Attendance at the conclusion of the seminar.


Teaching American History
"It gave me a better understanding of the Founders’ views. They saw that restricting religious liberty is not only wrong; it leads to animosity within society. This year, I will begin both my government class and my class on “Law and Modern Society” with George Washington’s Letter to the Hebrew Congregation at Newport." — Sean B.
