Teacher Perspectives: Teaching challenges

Matt Johnson: The biggest challenge will be the quality of the briefs that are made by the students--whether they get the big picture and the big issues involved in each Supreme Court decision. Then, I think a challenge will be having the kids really put solid thinking into the arguments they make before the Court. At the same time, the judges have to take their role seriously. That's one of the reasons I have some requirements on the worksheet that has to be filled out. I need to direct them into what I think they should be focusing on.
