Osborn, Elizabeth R.
This lesson plan about Indiana's court system is designed to work with any classroom resources a teacher may use when teaching a U.S. history, government, or Indiana history class. The lesson also provides online suggestions, general legal links at the end of the lesson to aid a teacher or student interested in exploring other legal topics, and a comprehensive glossary of legal terms. The lesson cites learning objectives; suggests five learning activities; and addresses related Indiana social studies standards. It discusses the difference between a civil case and a criminal case and provides an organizational chart of the Indiana judicial system. (BT)
