Mandate for change : the impact of law on educational innovation by Joel F Henning( Book )

4 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report focuses on a study of law-related education in high school social studies programs in five states--California, Georgia, Illinois, Pennsylvania, and Texas. Teachers and administrators from 78 high schools were interviewed. Part 1 of the report explains law-related education and deals with respondents' reports of the status of law-related education in the five states. It includes courses offered, methods and materials used, and goals of educators. Part 2 investigates how law-related education became part of the curriculum in these five states. It includes information on such areas as relevant laws and regulations dealing with social studies, the effect of curriculum mandates, and other factors affecting the introduction of law-related education. Part 3 focuses on the"hidden curriculum," or the implicit messages in citizenship and law-related education conveyed by schooling. Part 4 summarizes conclusions with an emphasis on how state law influences law-related education. (Author/JM)

Daring to dream : law and the humanities for elementary schools by Lynda Falkenstein( Book )

3 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Approximately 60 articles discuss the need and rationale for and ways of accomplishing a revival of civic learning in elementary school. The premise of the book is that creative law and humanities programs in elementary schools can help create a more equitable, just, and humane world. Articles are presented in six major categories--Origins and Directions; Children's Learning; Schools and Schooling; Introducing, Nurturing, and Maintaining; Evaluation; and Looking Ahead. Titles include "Social and Political Thinking in Children: Implications for Law and Humanities Education,""Real Problem Solving through Law and Humanities Education,""Law-Related Education and Elementary Social Studies Programs,""Nonverbal Tactics for Teaching about Law and the Humanities,""Law and Values in American Society," and "Program Evaluation: a Collage of Views." For each of the six sections, an introduction is presented which offers a broad outline of major topics covered by the various papers within the section. In addition, each section concludes with a section entitled "Bringing it Together." The document concludes with a brief general synthesis of the papers in which essential ideas and themes are combined into a statement of basic areas requiring attention. These areas include the need for long-range planning by project staffs, the development of elementary materials suitable to the elementary school context, a stronger commitment to and utilization of evaluation methods, and more attention to the hidden curriculum.

In search of justice by American Bar Association( Book )

6 editions published between 1976 and 1982 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph briefly examines justice in the United States as it has evolved historically in four areas: (1) the right to vote; (2) the right to freedom of expression and freedom of the press; (3) the rights of persons accused of crimes; and (4) the right to equal protection under the law. Each area is analyzed. Historical background information and constitutional case studies and their effect are contained in each chapter. The intention of the booklet is not to provide a comprehensive history; rather the booklet offers insights regarding several fundamental principles of a democratic society. (Author/JR)
