Enhancing Teaching through Lesson Plans and Videos
Justice in the Classroom is a series of educational programs designed to enhance the teaching of civics, history, and government for our nation's children and people everywhere. Currently there are three programs available with Virginia Standards of Learning [SOL] lesson plans attached.
- Justice in the Classroom - Rule of Law and John Marshall
- Justice in the Classroom - The Rule of Law
- Justice in the Classroom - Judicial Systems - Federal and Virginia
What Our Lessons Teach
The videos and lesson plans teach how our fledgling democracy in the United States was floundering and nearly failed before John Marshall took on the daunting task of defining what the Constitution, and the judiciary, meant. Justice in the Classroom tells the intriguing story of the acceptance of the rule of law to assure the success of the Constitution and our liberties.
How it Works
Justice in the Classroom is an online slide show presentation tool designed to operate like a PowerPoint. Within each presentation are still slides as well as video segments. Instructions on how to use the presentation are located on the first slide after you press PLAY. Print documents (PDF) of the corresponding Standards and Lesson Plans are attached to each chapter.
