Everyday Law - Preparing for Legal Issues in Your Life

The Understanding Canadian Law, Grade 11, Workplace Preparation (CLU3E) course is a valuable opportunity for students to build on the legal knowledge gained in grade 10 Civics, while enhancing students’ interest in the law.

In Brief: Collective Bargaining

OJEN In Brief resources are designed to provide high school students with an introduction to basic legal concepts. Each resource includes a short lesson plan for the teacher; a 1-4 page plain language description of the legal topic; and activities that provide students with the opportunity to apply their knowledge of the topic.

Legal Reasoning Tool: How to Write a Case Brief

OJEN Legal Reasoning Tools are designed to provide high school students with the skills to investigate legal issues, identify perspectives and think critically about legal developments within the classroom and beyond. These tools assist students in applying the legal inquiry process by guiding them through the stages of formulating questions, gathering and organizing information, interpreting and analyzing legal issues, evaluating and drawing conclusions, and communicating their findings.

Values of the Justice System - Grade 10 Civics Curriculum Resource

The resource was developed in 2005 by a team of teachers, and is based on discussions with Ontario's then Chief Justices who identified key values underlying our justice system. The material is intended to assist in stimulating discussion, debate, criticism, study and analysis of principles underlying our legal system, recognizing that the teacher is entitled to use any or all of the resource as considered appropriate for the discussion of what may be controversial issues. 

The activity clusters represent but a small portion of the entire course, estimated at about 20%, or 12-13 hours. Therefore, it is not necessarily intended that the classroom teacher utilize every activity found within the numerous appendices. Wherever possible, the activity packages were designed so that the classroom teacher could meet the expectations while engaging the students. Culminating activities, particularly in Section 5, enable students to delve into the nature and implications of legal rights and responsibilities. Beyond the immediate framework of the Grade 10 Civics course, it is anticipated that students will gain a greater, more nuanced understanding of their roles as citizens of local, national and international communities.
