Law-Related Education and the Preservice Teacher. Proceedings of a Working Conference (Cincinnati, Ohio, April 21-23, 1988).
Anderson, Charlotte C., Ed.; Naylor, David T., Ed.
Evolving from a working conference, this volume examines three areas basic to preservice teacher preparation. Specifically, the conference explored (1) the literature and research that informs and supports law-related education; (2) the knowledge, skills, and abilities that teachers need in order to teach law-related education effectively; and (3) the access points and strategies for making law-related education an integral part of preservice teacher education. The following papers are included: "Making LRE an Integral Part of Preservice Teacher Education Programs" (D. Naylor); "Lessons about Teacher Training" (L. Arbetman); "The Challenge of Teacher Education Reform" (H. Gideonse); "Civic Competency: A Natural Nexus with Law-Related Education" (J. Nelson); "Using Law-Related Education to Facilitate Students' Learning in Critical Thinking" (F. Rogers); "School Climate: Research Insights for the Education of Social Studies Teachers" (M. Hepburn); "LRE and Delinquency Prevention: Implications for Preservice Education" (R. Hunter); "Law-Related Education Research: Curriculum, Teaching, and Learning" (D.
