Students read excerpts from John Marshall's opinion from Cherokee v. Georgia, answer 13 questions of varying degrees of difficulty, and respond to 2 tasks. The answers are included where appropriate and this would be great for a sub!
Sample questions include:
--Compare and contrast the past and present of Native Americans. Explain why there is such a difference in their conditions.
--What did the Cherokee succeed in proving and what is the remaining stumbling block to their legal success?
--In what ways was the “condition” described as less than authentic/fair, and why?
--According to this opinion, did the Cherokee have the legal ability to sue in federal or state courts, why or why not?
