This book is centered on the fifteen landmark cases as identified and required for students taking the College Board Advanced Placement ® Government and Politics Exam. Reading U.S. Supreme Court cases can be a difficult task, especially in the limited time frame allotted to prepare for the exam. In keeping with the College Board's admonition that students be able to read and understand the high-level language of primary sources, this book engages readers with the original language of the cases in a condensed form with the most integral pieces intact in order to prepare students for the complex thinking and analysis required for the course and the exam. More than simple summaries, these cases maintain the original language and include thought-provoking, challenging, questions to train readers to read like lawyers, not only for the exam, but for the rest of their lives as consumers of new and emerging case law.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This book is an invaluable resource for all AP US Government and Politics classrooms. The authors have painstakingly poured over each of the 15 required cases and made them more accessible to high school students. Not only do they include critical thinking questions throughout the decision, but they also have excellent real-life connections at the end that will help any student successfully connect each case to issues and topics they deal with on a daily basis, allowing students to see the modern-day relevance of Supreme Court decisions. -- Paula R. Franklin, EdS, 2017 Milken Educator; Social Studies Teacher, West High School, Knoxville, TN
The Supreme 15 is a great one-stop resource that pulls together a student-friendly compilation of AP Government's required cases. Each case's presentation of the decision cuts to the heart of the matter, and leaves students with critical questions for extension to guide classroom discussion. It's a great way to initiate student deliberation! -- Jenifer Hitchcock, AP Government Teacher, Fairfax County Public Schools; James Madison Fellow 2016
Oltman, Graff, and Maddux provide an in-depth analysis that engages the reader to understand the complexity of constitutional law and the processes by which our rights are applied. This book is a must have for supplemental material for the AP Government Curriculum and gives teachers a much-needed complete resource ready to use! -- Alex William Bennett, MEd, RHO Kappa Faculty Adviser; blog, The Government Gurus
