Instructions: You are expected to write a brief response—generally ranging from a paragraph to multiple paragraphs—to each of the questions in the guide for each case (or set of cases). This means your total guide may span from a few paragraphs to a few pages. The responses should be in your own words and not involve extensive quotations from the text of the opinion. You are not to utilize sources outside of the textbook in completing the reading guides

-In what ways is the majority opinion similar to that of Marshall in Gibbons v. Ogden?
-In comparing this decision with that of Wickard v. Filburn (1942) were the worst fears of the dissenters validated?
