Implementing Effective LRE Programs. ERIC Fact Sheet No. 8.
Little, Judith Warren; Haley, Frances
The importance of following prescribed principles in the implementation of an effective law-related education (LRE) program is emphasized. Based on research findings that law-related education is a delinquency-prevention technique, the fact sheet lists six prescriptions for providing effective law-related education programs: (1) the use of teaching strategies that foster true interaction and joint work among students; (2) the judicious selection and presentation of illustrative case materials; (3) the provision of a sufficient quantity of instruction; (4) adequate preparation and use of outside resource persons; (5) professional peer support for teachers; and (6) active involvement of building administrators in law-related education. The document concludes that while research may reveal other factors to be important, these six factors are critical in enabling teachers to provide LRE programs that are effective for delinquency-prevention.
