Judicial Process, Grade Eight. Resource Unit (Unit V).
Minnesota Univ., Minneapolis. Project Social Studies Curriculum Center.
This resource unit, developed by the University of Minnesota's Project Social Studies, introduces eighth graders to the judicial process. The unit was designed with two major purposes in mind. First, it helps pupils understand judicial decision-making, and second, it provides for the study of the rights guaranteed by the federal Constitution. Both purposes are met through the study of several long case studies as well as through the analysis of short cases and many other kinds of materials. Two outlines of content, preceded by objectives, are used to show the relationship of data and generalizations and to suggest the order in which different topics and case studies might be taken up in the classroom. A reading on local government and politics concludes the unit. The teacher's guide is SO 007 511. (Author/KSM)
