You and the Law. Guide for Teaching a Sixteen Class-hour Unit on Citizenship Education. Grade 8.
Texas Education Agency, Austin.
The basic elements of good citizenship, the rights and responsibilities of citizens under law, and the possible long and short term consequences of violating it are emphasized in this guide for teaching fourteen taped lessons for the 8th grade unit, "You and the Law." Twenty-five designs for transparencies which are to assist in teaching six of the lessons are provided here. A prerequisite to the course is that students have studied constitutional history and constitutional amendments. Students objectively analyze and discuss viewpoints concerning constitutional rights, liberties, civil rights, growth of crime, and examine individual biases. Additional approaches suggested are improving listening skills, and using case studies. Sixteen lessons are presented with a brief description of the audio-taped recordings and background, and suggested class discussion questions. A short, selected list of additional materials which emphasize the case approach is provided. (SJM)
