Just-Us Is You! (Teacher's Manual).
The purposes of this teaching manual are to provide teachers with writing assignments related to the justice system and to generate newspaper materials for JUST-US. JUST-US is a newspaper written by and for students studying the justice system in the United States. Eight issues are published during the school year and distributed to law-related education classes in 13 states. The manual contains teaching strategies, 14 student assignments, and student guidelines for submitting articles to JUST-US. Student assignments include writing feature articles, fiction, news stories, editorials, conducting interviews, survey and opinion polls, and writing articles for a consumer law column. Students are also assigned to teach a law-related topic. The assignment includes listing objectives, materials used, teaching strategy, evaluation methods, and follow-up activities. Case studies, a "Dear Abby" column, photography, and cartooning are also included. Each assignment presents the purpose, specific instructions for students, and provides a framework in which to carry out the assignment. (KC)
