Introduction to Key Constitutional Concepts and Supreme Court Cases explores the Constitution’s origins and its changes over the years, from the initial burst of amendments that brought us the Bill of Rights, through the bloody disruption of the Civil War and into the 20th and 21st centuries. It discusses landmark Supreme Court cases that show how the Framers’ ideas have fared in the modern world. The online course, taught by University of Pennsylvania law professor Kermit Roosevelt, is a project of Annenberg Classroom and the Penn law school. The course will begin on May 2, 2016, and a new session will be offered every month. The content is appropriate for high school students, college students and the general public.
