Nevada's Supreme Court Justices

TimeNov. 19, 2012

from:Bidell, Barbara

to:Nevada History

Students have embarked on project that introduces them to the people who sit on Nevada's Supreme Court. Students created projects in which they examined both the personal and professional highlights of the lives of five of the seven the justices; Nancy Saitta, Michael Douglas, Mark Gibbons, Kristina Pickering, and Chief Justice Michael Cherry. Students will use each others' presentations to take a short quiz on the justices this week. That will wrap up the first unit on Nevada's Government; we will revisit the subject in February when the legislative session begins. 

For this week's homework, students will be finding out three facts about the two justices that we have not covered: Ron Parraguirre and James Hardesty.
