Second- and third-year law students teach constitutional rights and responsibilities in public high schools, including a special curriculum on the history and future of democracy and the right to vote. Assessment is on a pass/fail basis consisting of attendance, participation, and presence and participation in the high school classes. This class covers and proposes to provide in-depth and thought-provoking coverage of our constitutional rights and how to teach these rights to high school kids at South Mountain High School. Law students who teach in the high school will acquire a extensive depth of knowledge in constitutional law in order to prepare for the unpredictable and stunningly sophisticated questions that can only come from the curious and uninhibited minds of teenagers.
This program was created by American University and has been replicated in several law schools. There is a textbook, written for high school students, which will be the basis for the academic component here, and the text for the high school classes.
