Included in the booklet are guidelines for courtroom visits, classroom visits, and samples lesson plans for judges and teachers. Suggested lesson plan topics and lesson plans explained in the guidebook are: (1) "First Amendment and Teenagers"; (2) "How Are Jurors Chosen?" (3) "Every Bully Has a Right to an Attorney"; (4) "An Introduction to Juvenile Justice"; (5) "When Are Juveniles Treated as Adults?" and (6) "You Be the Sentencer!"
