Civics: Juvenile Justice in Missouri

Students investigate their rights and responsibilities as juveniles in the Missouri legal system. After taking a poll on juvenile justice, they discuss their responses and suggest changes which they could send to the state legislature. In lessons two and three, they discuss when juveniles are treated as adults. In groups, they role-play cases and compare and contrast their decision with that of student- judges.
