Program Design for Developing Law Awareness in Primary Grade Children.
A practicum project was designed and implemented to improve and increase kindergarten through third-grade students' awareness of responsible citizenship. To attain this goal, efforts were made to (1) insure that teachers became knowlegeable about teaching strategies that impart an awareness of law-related concepts; (2) increase students' awareness of the law and citizen responsibilities through increased community involvement; (3) expose students to careers within law agencies; and (4) develop a medium through which pupils in kindergarten through sixth grade can show the community and other classes their growth in citizenship skills. Results of student pretests and posttests, teacher questionnaires, records of visiting community resource personnel, implementation of career units, and three published editions of a student newspaper provided evidence that the goals of the practicum had been attained.
