Participate in a guided tour of the Justice Education Society’s new LawLessons.ca website. Discover over 60 social studies lesson plans that are aligned to the new K-12 curriculum and include links to videos, websites, news articles, graphic organizers, and rubrics. Prepare to help your students examine historic and current events through a legal lens.
This workshop will enable you to confidently infuse the concepts of justice, fairness, and rights into your social studies classes through “plug and play” lesson plans that focus on big ideas, competencies, and interactive learning. You will also hear about the availability of live virtual legal education webinars and discuss the return of court visits by school groups. At the end of the session, you will be invited to provide feedback on the development of new legal education curriculum resources and/or live webinars.
