Educator Resources for Argument Wars

Argument Wars is a series of games made up of landmark Supreme Court cases, including Brown v. Board of Education and New Jersey v. T.L.O. In each game, a player takes the role of a lawyer who represents one side in the case. First, he or she must determine the best argument and then support that argument using a variety of possible statements. Choosing the best supporting statement helps the player advance, but he or she must be prepared to sometimes explain to the judge how the chosen support relates to a main argument. And watch out! The computer-generated opponent is clever and has some good arguments for winning the other side of the case.
