Suggestions, Comments, Tips and Hints for Teaching Law-Related Education to Students with Disabilities from Educators Nationwide. Teacher Talk.
Routier, Wanda J., Comp.
Compiled from teachers' responses during the 1992-93 school year, this guide presents suggestions and comments for educators involved in the Law-Related Education Program for Students with Disabilities, a program funded by the U.S. Department of Education. The teachers whose comments are featured in this guide represent high schools, middle schools, and juvenile detention centers from across the United States. They offer advice on teaching rights to students with learning, mental, emotional, behavioral, hearing, or vision disabilities. The teachers explain the training they underwent, the obstacles faced, including disciplinary problems, and the projects they pursued with students, such as field trips to courts and the creation of law-related education hypercard stacks. In one segment, Mary Jane Breen and Flemming Godiksen, teachers at Bucks County Technical School, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, illustrate how they tailored the program to their students' interests by teaching about the Americans with Disabilities Act.
