Teacher's Guide for Maryland v. Trouble: A Video Tape Recording. Law-Related Education Program for the Schools of Maryland.
Hiberman, Ira; Vetter, Donald P.
The teacher's guide provides objectives, goals, learning activities, resources, teaching techniques, student bibliographies, and other sources helpful to teachers in developing, planning, and implementing juvenile justice education programs in the social studies classroom. The first section of the guide examines the nature of juvenile crime, goals for instruction, relevant videotape sections, and introduces a shoplifting simulation. The second section investigates police and arrest procedures through activities which involve students in simulated police action. The third section focuses on the juvenile system. Students observe proceedings of a juvenile court case, analyze the juvenile system, and compare it to the judicial process used for adult defendents. Activities in sections one through three include: videotape analysis, class visitations by policemen and merchants, readings, class discussions, role playing, class debate, the case study approach, and classroom polls. A directory of juvenile justice resource people in Carroll County, Maryland, is included. An accompanying videotape, entitled "Maryland v. Trouble," may be obtained from the Law-Related Education Program for the Schools of Maryland, Carroll County Public Schools, 55 North Court St., Westminster, Maryland, 21157. (Author/DB)
