The New Jersey State Bar Foundation’s three blogs are great resources for teachers who are teaching remotely during the COVID-19 virus crisis.
The posts on all three blogs—The Informed Citizen, The Legal Eagle Lowdown and The Respect Rundown—contain discussion questions and relevant glossary words for ready-made lesson plans that start a conversation. Written in plain language, these posts help students better understand the subject matter and enhance class discussion.
On the Informed Citizen, NJSBF’s civics blog, there are more than two dozen civics-related topics, including democratic norms, origins of political parties, equal justice under the law, primaries and caucuses and impeachment.
