Two newsletters are combined as one document. The first presents classroom strategies for both elementary and secondary students in a lesson entitled "Toward a Study of Policy." Methods suggested for developing the lesson include provocative questions, open-ended statements, student polls, pictures, films, posters, and use of police officers as resource persons. A news section describes five courses offered by the center in the fall on teaching about the law and criminal justice system, reports on the Third Annual Summer Institute, and describes the Law Resource Personnel Program offered by the center to Cincinnati-Hamilton County teachers and administrators. The remainder of the issue is devoted to a discussion of recent Supreme Court decisions and a plan for teachers to follow in using a Supreme Court decision in the classroom. The second describes the center's five spring courses and presents classroom strategies related to the teaching of law-related topics prepared by fall participants in the center's courses. Also included are an interview with the Director of Corrections for the Hamilton County Municipal Court on the "Adult Probation Officer," a survey of attitudes of Appalachian youth toward legal authority, a description of Ohio's new marijuana law, a description of the center's Law Resource Personnel Program, and information on recent Supreme Court decisions.
