Law and You.
Schurr, Sandra
Fourteen activity units are presented to help elementary and junior high students learn about laws, rules, and respect for others. A pretest introduces the materials by asking students why society has rules and laws, which ones apply to children, and what reactions students have to the word "cop." The subsequent units involve the students in group discussion, games, role play, and interviews. Opening units present data and facts about juvenile delinquency and juvenile court proceedings. Students are encouraged to identify broken rules in a cartoon, and to write down rules by which their families live. Next, the school is studied as an environment that requires special rules. In a section about citizen responsibility, situations are described in which students must decide how they should react to comply with the law. If stealing is against the law, what should one do when a friend takes something from a store? Other units cover the Bill of Rights and television "cop" shows. Activities include inventing a crime detection device for the future. Almost all the units stress student discussion and analysis of personal views. (AV)
