As part of C-SPAN's Landmark Cases: Miranda v Arizona, Susan Swain C-SPAN host introduces scenes from a variety of TV shows and movies that illustrate the Miranda Rights.
The Supreme Court has the power to interpret the Constitution. Its rulings on cases determine the meaning of laws and acts of Congress and the president. This bell ringer discusses the Supreme Court Case that led to the Miranda Warnings being used by law enforcement. It can be used to introduce students to the 5th amendment and due process of law or as a closure activity after students have been taught due process. Have students turn and talk with a partner to answer the questions and ask some groups to share their answers. Teachers can also opt to use the worksheet in the Additional Resources section and assign it to students through Google Classroom, Schoology, or other platform.
