Using the John Marshall House–the 1790 home of our 4th Supreme Court Chief Justice–as a lens, this program will use visual aids, primary sources, historic objects, and Q&A to explore and examine the concept, function, and interaction between the three branches of government.
Students will understand the concept, function, and interaction between the three branches of government, as well as learn about Chief Justice John Marshall’s role in elevating the power of the Supreme Court. Students will exercise skills in primary source analysis, historical inquiry, critical thinking, active citizenship, connecting past to present, and evaluating change over time.
