Law 20-30: Teacher Resource Manual.
King, John; Jackson, Landis
Law 20, in the Alberta (Canada) educational system, is an introductory course with three core modules: (1) "Nature of Law and Civil Law System," (2) "Contract Law," and (3) "Family Law." Law 30 consists of (1) "Basic Rights and Responsibilities," (2) "Labour Law," and (3) "Property Law." Two optional modules are available in each course if it is offered for five credits. The purpose of this manual is to help teachers meet the program objectives for the Law 20-30 curriculum, revised in 1985. The manual assists with long-range planning by providing suggestions on how to select modules and with short-range planning by providing suggestions on how to sequence the topics within these modules. It outlines teaching strategies that should be implemented in the course and suggests activities, as well as ideas on how to evaluate student progress. The manual also identifies terms and provides definitions of words used in each module and lists approved and community resources. The methods suggested are based on practices used by successful and experienced educators in Alberta. (JB)
