Kelly, Cynthia A., Ed.
Over 170 law-related education programs for elementary and secondary students are described. These programs involve more than one teacher and focus on the law, legal system, and legal process. Program content generally covers the Constitution; Bill of Rights; legal processes; and consumer, criminal, and juvenile law. Activities often include instruction for teachers as well as curriculum development, conferences, workshops, and community involvement projects. Most programs are aimed at elementary and secondary students, but some serve teachers and community members as well. The bulk of the directory consists of state-by-state listings of programs. Within each state, programs that operate in a variety of districts are listed first. The rest of the programs in each state are listed alphabetically by city. Information is given on subject areas taught, activities, instructional materials, staff participants, sponsors, and sources of funding. All programs listed in this edition are part of schoolwide programs or are administrered by identified coordinators. Information about individual teachers' law-related activities is available on request from the publisher (see note field for address). (Author/AV)
