Free Teacher Guide on Legal Underdog Lessons (50 pages)

1- Teachers on the TpT website: Start 2019 by bringing my lessons of justice into your classrooms.
Free Teacher Guide on Legal Underdog Lessons.

2- Student reading is available to everyone at Justice Cases for the Classroom.

INTRODUCTION - Unlike Hollywood law dramas, which neatly wrap up cases in an hour or two, achieving actual justice through the legal system is often slow, frustrating, and requires patience and persistence. This Teacher Guide demystifies that unrealistic version of “justice achieved.” It provides teachers with an opportunity to engage students in meaningful classroom discussions of real “David v. Goliath” justice cases, with mixed results for David. It is designed for students to appreciate and critically discuss what it takes to achieve true justice in the criminal and civil law systems.
Below are cases that I have studied, written about, and in some instances, maintained contact with the legal underdogs involved. Each case has deeply personal significance to me for different reasons, and thus I write about them in the first person. My hope is that if teachers and students experience my passion and engagement, they may be inspired to follow a local, national, or international issue and choose to participate as a voice of change, whether through social media or some other avenue.
