Naylor, David T.
This document contains an instructional booklet on rules for use by social studies classroom teachers in grades two and three as they develop and implement a law-related education program. It also contains spiritmaster handouts for use by students. Objectives of the unit include helping primary school pupils clarify their feelings and beliefs about rules, acquire insight into reasons for rules, evaluate rules, and develop a set of rules that they are willing to abide by in the classroom. The unit is presented in 13 lessons. Titles are, How Do You Feel About Rules? Rules and You; Rules at Home; Rules at School; Rules at Play; Rules in Our Community; Rules, Rules, Rules; Reasons for Rules; Why We have Rules; Assessing Rules; Rules for Our Classroom; How I Feel About Rules; and What I've learned about Rules. Students are involved in a variety of activities, including creative writing, classification of rules into various categories, drawing pictures that show people either following or not following rules at home and at school, interviewing family members about why certain rules exist in the home, surveying rules in homes of all students in the class, exploring differences in school and classroom rules, and making collages from magazine pictures which illustrate people following or not following rules in particular settings. For each lesson, information is presented on overview, objectives, procedures, activities, and handouts. Handouts which accompany the lessons include matching exercises, word puzzles, fill-in-the-blanks exercises, stories and cartoons illustrating rules, and lists of rules which apply to various situations.
