Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need specialized training to teach thinkLaw?
No. thinkLaw is not a legal education program. thinkLaw merely uses real-life legal cases as a tool for teaching a wide variety of critical thinking skills. thinkLaw includes helpful Instructor’s Notes to guide instructors through the small bit of background legal knowledge they need for each lesson in under 30 minutes.
Is thinkLaw right for my students?
There is a reason why there are so many television shows and movies about the law: people, especially young people, have an inherent sense of fairness and justice. For this reason, thinkLaw has broad applicability including college bridge programs, traditional public upper elementary, high school, and middle schools, nonprofit agencies, private and charter schools, and learners in adult education, workforce development programs, and employees in public service and other fields requiring significant critical thinking skills.
Does my thinkLaw purchase include training?
thinkLaw is easy-to-use, but to give instructors ownership over the thinkLaw curriculum within their specific context, thinkLaw includes 3 coaching and implementation sessions designed to empower instructors to deliver thinkLaw in the most effective way for their students and track the measurable outcomes desired by each thinkLaw user.

thinkLaw is currently standards-aligned for grades 5-12, and thinkLaw is currently designing versions for younger elementary school students.
