Register for "Supreme Court Cases that Changed America"

February 26, 2024, 8:30 AM CT - 2:30 PM CT | Hosted by: Region 11 Education Service Center | White Settlement, TX | Discussion Leader: Professor Eric Sands - Berry College

Many Supreme Court cases have shaped our history and established legal precedent. This seminar will focus on the Constitution and Federalism, the Constitution and the Commerce Clause, and conclude with a look at significant Civil Rights cases and their opinions.

This program will be conducted as a conversation among peers,tilizing primary source documents as the only readings, and with Professor Sands facilitating the conversation, instead of lecturing. Registrants are highly encouraged to read the documents and come with questions. Teachers will receive a lunch and 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.
