Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Ann Walsh Bradley is scheduled to visit the Boys & Girls Club of Door County Teen Center at 1 p.m. Tuesday to deliver what is described as an innovative civics lesson and to promote civics education.

Bradley, a former teacher, is state co-chair for iCivics, an online educational gaming website founded by retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor to reinvigorate civics education in the United States.

Bradley plans to use the educational resources at www.iCivics.org, including the online game Supreme Decision, to help explain how judges make decisions and to explore the First Amendment and the concept of judicial review.

"The youth who belong to the Boys & Girls Club of Door County will benefit from the fun games, lessons and other resources that can be found on the iCivics website," Bradley said.

In addition to online educational games, iCivics provides free lesson plans and teacher guides to help promote understanding of the Constitution, the democratic process and each branch of government.

"These are not only fun games, but these activities help improve understanding the courts and our form of government," Bradley said.

In Supreme Decision, players help cast the deciding vote in a Supreme Court case. At stake in the game is the suspension of Ben Brewer who wore his favorite band T-shirt to school against dress policy. Players help the final justice make up her mind and influence the outcome of the case.

Supreme Decision is one in a series of nine lessons that iCivics has customized for Boys & Girls Clubs throughout the United States. In all, iCivics has produced 18 educational video games as well as accompanying teaching materials.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Door County Teen Center is located at 836 Michigan St. in Sturgeon Bay.
