Davison, Susan E., Ed.
Over 400 films, filmstrips, audio cassettes, video tapes, and mixed media kits are described in this annotated catalogue of law-related materials for elementary and secondary education. The catalogue is divided into seven major content areas. Part one lists the audiovisual materials that deal with the history of the U.S. system of law, as well as its ethical and philosophical bases. The role of constitutional law in shaping the legal, political, and social order is the focus of the second part. Part three lists materials available on the Bill of Rights. The fourth section of the catalogue includes those materials appropriate to teaching about current issues, including minorities, youth, women, and environment and the law. Political process and practical law materials are listed in section five and six respectively. The last section lists materials that will be helpful to those new to the teaching of law. These materials include strategies, activities, objectives, and other useful information. Materials are listed alphabetically according to title within each section. Within each listing are the grade level, the type of materials, the distributor and year of production, and the cost of purchase or rental. All of the materials listed in this publication were reviewed by staff. Annotations are written primarily for the benefit of educators. (Author/JR)
