Fier, Harriet, Ed.; And Others
This user guide covers "Liberty and Justice," and offers suggestions for preparatory activities, lessons, and follow-up activities for primary, intermediate, and upper grade students. Goals for the series are to help children: (1) become familiar with the democratic process and active citizenship; (2) recognize what it means to be a citizen in a multi-cultural society; (3) build skills in communications and cooperation; (4) recognize how laws are made and how a single vote and voice matter; and (5) experience how caring and commitment build community. The objective of "Liberty and Justice" is for children to explore the concept of liberty and justice for all. The guide contains a 15-item bibliography. (LAP)
