Consequences of Law and Rule Breaking (Law-Related Education Materials) 1982-83. Materials Produced by Teachers in Highlands County.
Allen, Rodney F., Ed.
Approximately 40 teacher-developed activities for legal education in some Florida elementary and junior high schools focus on the consequences of breaking rules and committing crimes and on victims of crime (individuals, community, society). Most of the lessons present a brief, one-page reading followed by questions to determine students' understanding and judgment of the content. Topics include: reasons for and benefits of school rules, student rights, reading and interpreting statutes, being an accessory to crime, frequency of community crimes, citizenship responsibility, grand theft, vandalism, and the juvenile justice system. Other activities involve students in vocabulary exercises, puzzles, collages, interviews with victims of crime, library research, book reports, and visits to the county jail. Sheriff's department forms and Florida statutes relevant to specific crimes are also included. (KC)
