Climate change, GMOs, pollution, land preservation, the colonization of Mars—our students have some significant challenges ahead that will require powerful critical thinking skills! How do we prepare our classes for success in the 21st century? By fostering the development of the critical thinking skills they’ll need to solve the problems that we haven’t even thought of yet.

That’s why we’re excited to announce the launch of thinkLaw’s Environmental Justice Edition and Toolkit! Each real-life legal case focuses on the environmental issues that our students are passionate about.

  • Who’s responsible for what happened in Flint?
  • Should products made with GMOs be labeled “natural”?
  • Who’s responsible for accidents that result in water and air pollution?
  • Should plastic bags be banned?
  • Should the president be allowed to shrink federally protected national monuments?

These are just a few of the tough questions thinkLaw Environmental Justice asks students to analyze!

Like all thinkLaw products, our latest edition includes a toolkit that features a teacher guide with easy-to-prep facilitation tips, PowerPoints slides, student work pages, probing discussion questions, writing assessments with scoring guides, and premade Braincandy questions. Additionally, the Environmental Justice edition includes bonus sections with projects and extension activities to take your lessons to a new level with real-life activism by writing letters, testing drinking water, designing protest posters, and more!
