Once again, I would like to highlight a new link – Constitution Classroom – that has become available for teachers who plan social studies classes at the middle and high school levels. The Ohio State Bar Foundation has created a number of tools to help teachers plan programs around the constitution.
The topics include:
• Free Speech, Religion, Press, Assembly, Petition – We’re Number One! Search and Seizure – A Reasonable Test
• Due Process – Respecting Our Rights
• Three Branches of Government – A Constitutional Blueprint
Each topic also has case materials for mock trials and other information to help with several lesson plans.
Constitution Classroom can be found here: www.osbf.net/what-we-do/constitutionclassroom/
The attorneys who prepared this site hope that it will help promote classroom conversations. Let them know if their work was useful.
