When it is time to present a case on the discussion board, you’ll see it in the activities for that day in weekly handout. You will be scored on your presentation as a separate assignment. The instructions for that assignment are below.

  1. Compose a 100–300-word paragraph to introduce the case to the class. It should be a summary (not detailed yet) of the items from the case brief you created for the case.
  2. Create a 2-3 minute video of yourself discussing the case. Here is where you can add details to flesh out the summary introduction. In your video, you should present enough information that other participants can ask informed questions but also left out enough so there is still room for conversation.
  3. In the discussion board, create a new thread with a title that tells the reader what your post is about (such as the name of the case and the citation).
  4. In the body of your post, share your 100-word paragraph and your video (or a link to your video if you put it on YouTube).

The combination of your paragraph and your video should include about half of the following elements. After interacting with other participants, the other half of the elements should be present as well. That is, by the end of the discussion, you should have addressed all of them.

  • Identify the parties involved.
  • Describe the case’s procedural history
  • Concisely summarize the relevant case facts, the case’s issue(s)[1]
  • Concisely summarize the arguments made by each side.
  • Describe the SCOTUS results (including the holding, vote count, author of the majority opinion, and whether concurring and/or dissenting opinions were written).
  • Summarize the argument of each opinion that was written (including the legal rule(s) employed and the reasoning).
  • Analyze the conclusion. What should occur based upon the court’s opinion?

[1] Remember, the issues that come before the Supreme Court are questions of law, rather than factual questions. Refer back to earlier handouts and/or the textbook for help with this distinction.
