YOU MUST BRING TWO COPIES OF YOUR OUTLINE TO CLASS TOMORROW. Print them at 8:20 if you do not have a printer at home. One copy is for me, and one is to use in your Supreme Court Group.
Your outlines will be returned via Ms. Lewis on Monday. Your first two paragraphs are due Monday, Dec. 1. Work on them before you go on Thanksgiving break so you will have a homework-free vacation.

For homework this weekend, find read everything you can about your case. No need to take notes yet. It’s a preliminary reading stage. Find out what happened. Check out where your source is chronicled. Is it on the Landmark page? Is it on the Oyez page? Can you find it on other reliable websites? Read through the material.
Tip: Go to sites by typing in your case followed by “site:org” or “site:edu” or “site:gov” – you’re more likely to find reliable sources that way. Write down good websites.
You’ll be learning about the essay project in greater detail on Monday, so be sure to have done your preliminary reading so you can have a clear idea moving forward.
I am treating you more like a high school student. If you don’t do the work as you go along, you will pay the price in the writing process. It’s not about one little homework assignment. Take yourself seriously!
Here are the websites:http://www.landmarkcases.org/
3 cases are on this site
