Option #1: President Research Paper
Choose 1 former American president to research, paying particular attention to their first 100 days in office. You will compare their First 100 Days with that of President Trump’s. Also, include the “success” of the former president’s presidency. Discuss if you think Trump will be successful based on his First 100 Days. This will be a compare and contrast style research paper between former president and our current one.

Choose 1 Supreme Court Case from our list of 10 (in your google docs). Explore the background, meaning, constitutionality, and impact of this case on the American people.
Your thesis should focus on answering the questions, “How and why did the Supreme Court rule the way they ruled in this case? and What has been the impact of this case on the American people?”
