Building Legally Capable Students

This workshop is intended to help teachers engage deeper into the social studies and law related knowledge, skills and understanding students need to become legally capable youth.  This workshop will begin with an introduction to the Justice Education Society’s re-imagined curricular framework that will help and support teachers who want to deliver legal, social studies and law related content across the curriculum.

​Working in smaller groups, you will be presented with a variety of scenarios that will help you identify the knowledge, skills and understanding your students will need to better engage with the law, recognize their legal needs, resolve their legal problems, where and when to get legal help, and finally, how to assert their legal rights and responsibilities.  Afterwards, you will share your thoughts through a gallery walk that will build on each other’s thoughts which we will synthesize and return to you.
