This week C-SPAN debuted its new Landmark Cases series, beginning with the 1803 Supreme Court decision in the case of Marbury v. Madison – a decision that still resonates today. Each week C-SPAN Classroom will provide Bell Ringer video clips and related vocabulary and discussion questions from each of the 12 programs. Below are several from this week's full length Marbury v. Madison program (1hr 33min):
TEACHERS: Each week we're also offering registered C-SPAN Classroom members a chance to win a copy of our companion book, Landmark Cases, written by veteran Supreme Court reporter, Tony Mauro. This week we have 2 copies to give away, both signed by our guests, Yale Law Professor Akhil Reed Amar, and author Cliff Sloan. For your chance to win a copy, in a short typed paragraph (3-5 sentences) explain how you ensure students’ understand the relevance of Marbury v. Madison, including how it effects their lives.
