School Violence and the Law.
Organized around the theme of school violence, this booklet provides teachers and lawyers with classroom materials for elementary grades 4-6 (Level A), intermediate grades 6-8 (Level B), and high school grades 9-12 (Level C). In addition, each level contains pages for the lawyer (marked by the scales of justice), the teacher (an apple), and the student (a pencil). The booklet contains lesson plans, activities, a youth violence and crime survey, and an evaluation form for lawyers using the materials. The lessons and activities ask students to investigate sources of school violence as well as identify legal (laws) and non-legal (conflict resolution) prevention strategies to school violence. The inside front cover provides tips for lawyers preparing classroom presentations. (TSV)
