Inquiry, A Project of the Wisconsin Bar Foundation. Vols. 1 and 2, Revised.
Scheurich, G. Michael, Ed.
This new, revised edition of the Inquiry instructional materials is designed for use in teaching high school students about the U. S. laws and legal systems. The revised outlines, designed for instructors who have had legal training, are less technical and more informal, include new concepts and many current relevant topics, and de-emphasize lecture in favor of continuous interchange between instructor and student. Among the teaching strategies suggested are classroom visits by attorneys, mock trials, classroom discussion, and problem solving. The two volume publication consists of the following four mini courses: (1) Practical Legal Problems; (2) Legal and Governmental System; (3) The Bill of Rights--Civil Liberties; and (4) The Bill of Rights--Criminal Protection. Goals, background reading, sample and specific problems for discussion, scripts for roles in mock trials, outside reading, and supplementary materials are provided for each mini-course. Three mock trials are included. (Author/RM)
