Justicia = Justice. Level II. Student Book and Teacher's Edition.
Center for Civic Education, Calabasas, CA.
This curriculum is designed to help students understand and apply basic principles and considerations useful in examining issues of justice so they can determine for themselves what would be just in a particular situation. From such activities, students should gain an increased awareness of the importance of justice in their own lives and its place in contemporary society, and an increased capacity and inclination to deal with issues of justice effectively and wisely. In order to deal with the broad range of issues of justice, this curriculum is organized according to a common classification scheme that breaks down such issues into questions of distributive justice, corrective justice, and procedural justice. This edition of the curriculum, for students in grades 2 and 3, contains four units, each of which concerns a topical question. Unit 1 asks, "Que es la justicia?" (What is justice?) Unit 2 asks, "Como resolver problemas de justicia acerca de lo que le toca a cada uno?" (How can you solve problems of the fairness of who gets what?--Distributive justice.) Unit 3 asks, "Como resolver problemas de lo que es justo hacer para corregir un dano?" (How can you solve problems of fair ways to make things right?--Corrective justice). Unit 4 asks, "Como resolver problemas sobre lo que es justo hacer para saber algo que ha pasado y para tomar decisiones?" (How can you solve problems of fair ways to find out things and make decisions?--Procedural justice.) Each lesson in the teacher's guide features an overview, objectives, student materials, and learning procedures. This document is the English-Spanish Bilingual Edition of the curriculum, which has been created to provide Spanish-speaking students of limited English proficiency with an opportunity to participate in the instructional activities described.
