Full Course


Foundations of Law is the second course in the Law sequence being offered in the East Meadow School District. This project creates an updated scope and sequence for the first half of the year-long course, blending a modern day focus for the class on current trial procedures and mock trials, as well as a historical view of the development / nature of law in countries / regions outside the United States. The scope and sequence includes essential questions to guide educators as they continue to present material that is both engaging and relevant to students’ lives. Activities and projects are provided that allow for student-centered learning experiences that enhance both the students’ knowledge of law and the skills needed for future success in college and careers.
