A Kid in Trouble: Juveniles and the Law. Teacher's Manual.
Meyen, Edward L.; And Others
The teacher's manual accompanies an experimental instructional program entitled A Kid in Trouble - Juveniles and the Law, which was designed in an attempt to evaluate the effectiveness of teaching specific information about the law to mentally retarded youth. The 28 sequential lessons will be evaluated in field testing in selected junior high level special education classes. The program emphasizes the development of positive attitudes and understandings of legal concepts as they relate to students - i.e., what laws are, why there are laws, how laws are enforced, legal rights of individuals and juveniles. The manual contains article reprints and letter excerpts as background reading for teachers. The materials in the field testing kit are listed and explained. The directions given to teachers include instructions for teaching lessons, and directions for student evaluation and for field testing reports. Important words for the unit are defined. The major portion of the manual is devoted to detailed plans for each daily lesson. Contained are lists of resources, teaching sequences, activities, scope of lesson, and instructional objectives.
