This compilation of over 40 lesson plans on various topics in law related education was written by classroom teachers from around the United States who had participated in the fifth of an annual series called Special Programs in Citizenship Education (SPICE)--weeklong institutes devoted to learning about different cultures and laws. Called SPICE V for short, this most recent institute was held in the summer of 1991 with some 100 professionals in attendance. The lessons collected in this document are divided into four main categories: Comparative Law; Constitutional Law and History; Environmental Law; and Other. Sample lessons from each category, respectively, include: "A Comparative Analysis of Jury Systems"; "Bill of Responsibilities"; "Catamount Controversy: A Study of An Environmental Issue"; and "Becoming a Land Owner." Each lesson features the following information for teachers: overview, goals, audience, time to complete, materials, procedures, and tips for the teacher. Lessons are provided for each grade level.
