If you are an upper elementary or middle school teacher in Oregon who uses the We the People curriculum in your classroom, please join us each May at the State Capital where your students can conduct culminating hearings in front of a panel of Supreme Court judges, legislators and civic leaders in Capitol hearing rooms.
Note: The number of participating classes will determine how much time each class will have for its hearings. Classroom Law Project staff will do everything they can to accommodate teachers’ requests.
- Classes present simulated hearings judged by civic leaders
- Teacher may choose any number of unit(s) and specific question(s)
- Classes may observe hearings of students from other schools
- Students will see Project Citizen portfolios on display
