Fantasy Blogs & Badges

In addition to making predictions, each class will write a series of analytical blog posts for each case.  By signing up your class for FantasySCOTUS, you will automatically receive a free Wordpress blog hosted at the Harlan Institute. At the end of each lesson plan, you will find a series of blog post topics. Here are some possible topics:

For each submitted blog post, your class will be awarded a FantasySCOTUS Badge. Each badge will have a corresponding number of points, based on the level of difficulty of the assignment. The more badges you receive, the more points you score!

Please take a look at the Frisco CTE Blog--it received the most points in our competition last year.
