Meghan Rene, et al., v. Dr. Suellen Reed, et al. "Due Process." Lesson Plans for Secondary School Teachers on the Constitutional Requirement of "Due Process of Law." Courts in the Classroom: Curriculum Concepts and Other Information on Indiana's Courts for the K-12 Educator.
In the Rene v. Reed case, Meghan Rene and other disabled students argued that their due process rights were violated in regard to the Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress (ISTEP) graduation examination. This set of four lesson plans uses the case of Rene v. Reed, which was first argued before the Indiana Supreme Court, to study the constitutional requirement for due process of law. The lesson plans are entitled: (1) "What Is 'Due Process' Anyway?"; (2) "What Is the Difference between Procedural and Substantive Due Process?"; (3) "The Changing Meaning of 'Due Process'"; and (4) "Oral Arguments On-Line." Each lesson presents background information; states learning objectives; lists online resources; provides learning activities; suggests materials for further study; and addresses related Indiana social studies standards. The lesson plan contains a glossary; a case summary; the Appellant's Petition to Transfer; the Appellee's Opposition to Petition to Transfer; the "Order Denying Transfer"; and the Court of Appeals' Opinion.
