Argument Wars Social Studies Game: Preparing for Play

Learners will get more out of the Argument Wars social studies game if they are familiar with the rights contained in the Bill of Rights and in other amendments. It would also be best if they understand that, over the decades, the Supreme Court has had to interpret vague constitutional language to decide the limits of those rights.

We recommend starting the class with the New Jersey v. T.L.O. game within Argument Wars.
