Youth-in-Action Program Implementation Manual. Revised Edition.
Burke, Christa; And Others
This manual assists teachers in integrating three major components into a law-related education program: classroom visits by resource people, student field experience, and peer or cross-age teaching. Material is divided into five sections. A rationale for law-related education and background information on the Constitutional Rights Foundation are provided in the first two sections. The third section contains guidelines for using resource experts in the classroom. A step-by-step process for developing an active community resource committee to assist in the implementation of law-related education programs is outlined and suggestions for using resource people and other volunteers in the classroom are provided. The fourth section consists of guidelines for field experiences. Recommendations for contacting the field trip site, preparing students for the experience, establishing student responsibilities on the trip and follow-up activities are included. The final section focuses on guidelines for peer teaching and other student responsibilities. For all sections, extensive exhibits of materials, sample forms, and letters are provided to assist teachers in establishing a program. (LP)
