Davison, Susan E., Ed.
This annotated bibliography cites over 1,000 elementary- and secondary-level materials dealing with the philosophy, substance, and pedagogy of law-related education. It lists textbooks, curriculum kits and guides, journals and newsletters, and books that can serve as reference or supplementary materials. The bibliography is divided by topic into seven sections: (1) introduction to law: development of law, basic concepts underlying the justice system, and comparative law studies; (2) the role of the Constitution in shaping the legal, political, and social order of the United States; (3) the Bill of Rights; (4) current law-related issues in today's society such as drugs, consumerism, and taxes; (5) general handbooks of law containing legal knowledge useful to the average citizen; (6) local, state, national, and international political processes such as lobbying and campaigning; and (7) sources and concepts for teaching about law. Some sections are cross-referenced to other sections that have related content. Materials are listed alphabetically by author within each section. Each entry includes grade level, bibliographic information, and a brief annotation. Lists of series of materials, distributors and their addresses, and an index conclude the bibliography. (ND)
