It's the Law: Student's Rights and Responsibilities!
Oklahoma Bar Association, Oklahoma City.; Oklahoma State Dept. of Education, Oklahoma City.
Secondary-level learning activities dealing with youth and the law are included in this resource guide. Although the guide was written specifically for use in Oklahoma schools, it can, with modifications, serve as a model for other states. There are seven sections dealing with youth and: employment law, business rights and responsibilities, property, school, relations between people, arrest, and the court system. Each section is comprised of two parts, one containing questions and answers, the second containing learning activities. Students are expected to read and then use the materials provided in a question and answer section in many of the learning activities. For example, in the section on youth and property, students read the definitions of various types of crimes. A learning activity then asks them to read about criminal acts and identify the crime. Examples of other activities include involving students in discussing specific court cases, taking matching tests, and analyzing crime statistics. A selected bibliography is provided. (RM)
