This curriculum manual provides information, raises issues and questions of controversy, and suggests certain learning activities which will acquaint high school students with the law as it affects their lives both in school and in the community. Questions discussed in the section called Youth in School include truancy, freedom of expression, personal appearance, and due process. Topics discussed under Juveniles and the Law include the juvenile court and other aspects of juvenile justice. A third section approaches the underlying principles of authority and respect upon which the justice system rests and delves into ways of changing the system. Real and hypothetical case studies focusing on the inquiry approach to learning are presented. Also included are readings, role-playing simulation games, and other types of classroom activities. Each topic covered in the manual is designed so that a maximum of flexibility is possible regarding lesson plans. Class time spent in study and discussion of a particular subject area can be determined by class interest. Concentration on New Jersey laws does not preclude the manual's usefulness in other states.
