Street Law provides instruction about fundamental topics in government and law, including the legal and judicial systems, the U.S. Constitution, rule of law, and federalism. We provide updated information on current public issues like Supreme Court cases, immigration, voting and elections, gun laws, search and seizure, and civil rights and liberties.
We develop teacher capacity to use engaging, skill-building instructional strategies like simulations (e.g., mock trial, moot court, negotiation, dispute resolution, etc.), deliberative discussion, and project-based learning.
We have a flexible approach to program design and work directly with schools and school districts to determine the ideal content mix and program length.
Street Law can help teachers implement Common Core State Standards; the College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework for Social Studies State Standards; and the Understanding by Design framework in their classrooms.
