Student Rights and Responsibilities Scenarios.
Peterson, Ludwig A.; And Others
To stimulate interest in student's rights and responsibilities, this resource contains incomplete scenarios dealing with the consequences of knowing and not knowing the law, as it is applied to modern practical situations. The scenarios can be used in high school courses such as government, social problems, history, psychology, and business law. In most cases, the authors found the germ of their idea for the scenarios in actual cases or legislation. Some liberties have been taken with plot and situation, but only in terms of adding new dimension and interest. Many of the scenarios have references which may be used for further investigation. Teachers are encouraged to acquire these basic references for their students. Occasionally, no references are given at the end of a scenario. This means that although the situation is fairly typical of recent and current events in American life, no thinking from the courts or an Attorney General has been discovered. Over 25 scenarios are included. Topics vary. Some examples are: right to own and possess property; controversial speaker denied use of high school auditorium; may a student be punished for not saluting the flag?; auto accident; freedom of the student press; a restriction in student dress; arrogant hostility toward school rules; gambling; ruling on a library book; and parent's rights and responsibilities. The resource concludes with a selected glossary of law terms and definitions and a bibliography. (Author/RM)
