Journal of Research and Evaluation of the Oklahoma City Public Schools, v4 n5 Jul 1974
This evaluation of the Law Focused Curriculum Project of the Oklahoma Public Schools analyzes the human and nonhuman resources utilized in the project, and the nature and extent of activities. The first part of the document examines the program and its objectives. School-age citizens are to become acquainted with the law, the functions and procedures of the criminal justice system, and an individual's rights and responsibilities under the law and be affected in a positive way toward the role of law in American society. The project consists of a fifth-grade program with an emphasis on law incorporated into the present social studies program, an eight-grade course on governing and man using a new emphasis on law and the workings of the legal system, and a high school elective course dealing with practical knowledge of the legal system needed as an adult citizen. Part two deals with the evaluation of the Oklahoma project by analyzing the philosophy and goals of the project, comparing curriculum materials for law-focused curriculum, including grade level, a short description of the materials, availability, and price.
