Educational resources for teachers

Justice Teaching Institute

The Wisconsin Supreme Court, State Bar of Wisconsin, and the UW-Madison School of Education teamed up to offer the Judicial Teaching Institute to Wisconsin middle- and high-school teachers from 1999 to 2011. The institute was an opportunity for teachers to learn highly engaging teaching methods and interactive curriculum to help students learn content while enhancing critical thinking and literacy skills.

While the Justice Teaching Institute is no longer offered, an extensive teacher's guide was developed for the institute in 2006 and remains available free online: Connecting to the courts: A teacher's guide to the Wisconsin courts Adobe PDF.
