I used the Garvey, Farber, and Alenikoff reader, "Modern Constitutional Theory." I also had a "critical review" assignment, which was optional. That is, students could write a 10-page critical review of a selected text (it was Bobbitt's "Constitutional Fate") and have it "count" for a third of their grades. (About 15 students, out of 90, choose this option.)

Contrary to expected popular opinion, Chemerinsky is overrated in my opinion. I found most of the supplements generally worthless. There's nothing like reading the cases yourself; this is especially true in conlaw.
