On Saturday, May 9, 2020, at 10:00 a.m., the Robert H. Jackson Center will host its first-ever Battle of the Books. Our battle invites any Chautauqua County students in the sixth through eighth grades to demonstrate their abilities and test their knowledge of a pre-selected list of books they have read in preparation for the battle. Student teams earn points by answering questions about the books on the list. At the end of six rounds of questioning, we total the points earned by each team and the team with the most points will win the battle!
The Jackson Center is pleased to support Chautauqua County’s students, educators, attorneys, and judges involved in the Mock Trial program by hosting the final county competition. The competition will begin at 1:30 pm on Saturday, March 28, 2020. Admission is free, and the public is invited and encouraged to attend.
This unit will empower students to reflect on their personal career goals, brainstorm steps toward reaching those goals and use Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson as a case study of an individual who ascended from ordinary life in small-town America to the highest echelons of American government.
The unit of study is structured to take place over several class sessions depending on student work pace and the desired depth of research. Customization and adaptation are encouraged for differentiation and time management imperatives.
This exhibit pays tribute to Stan Nelson Lundine and celebrates his political career nearly 50 years after it began.
This tribute to the legacy of Robert H. Jackson was made possible through the generosity of our donors, and specifically Thomas Loftus III, Robert Loftus, and Julia Craighill, three of Jackson’s grandchildren.
