We are excited to announce the launch of thinkLaw Volume 2: The Social Justice Edition.
We live in an extremely polarized society. We are struggling with alarming growth of “fake” news sources and extremely biased media outlets on both sides of the political spectrum. We are trying to serve students and families who are extremely afraid of what new White House policies and actions will mean for them. And we are facing an unprecedented number of constitutional challenges.
So we must unleash our students’ inherent critical thinking skills to prepare them for real-world challenges that lie ahead.
TEACHERS, NOW MORE THAN EVER, MUST BE EQUIPPED TO HELP STUDENTS THINK CRITICALLY ABOUT THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS AND HOW THESE RIGHTS IMPACT THEIR DAY-TO-DAY LIVES.
This is why thinkLaw Volume 2: The Social Justice Edition includes highly-engaging, standards-aligned learning activities based on real-life legal cases involving issues our students are already living and breathing on a daily basis. Immigration rights, policing/criminal justice issues, school desegregation (and resegregation), bathroom bills, racial/religious profiling, voting rights, gun violence, and other core constitutional issues impacting their day-to-day lives. As they dissect these landmark court cases they ask questions: Who was involved? What happened? What was the intent? What was the ruling? What is the larger impact on the world? These very same questions are the ones students need to be asking as critical thinkers and citizens in their own lives.
We are so excited to see how this highly-relevant subject matter will improve our students’ critical thinking, writing, reading, and speaking skills and increase their civic and political engagement.
