This guide provides analyses of curriculum materials that have been designed for teaching about the U.S. Constitution and law-related education. The guide begins with an editor's introduction and two essays, qConstitution Study and Civic Educationq (James B. Giese) and qThinking about Law-Related Education during the Bicentennialq (Barbara Miller). The resource reviews are presented in three sections. Forty-three reviews of print-based materials for elementary (K-6) Constitution and law-related education are provided in section 1. The second section contains 86 print-based materials for secondary (7-12) classrooms. Simulations, games, filmstrips, cassettes, videotapes, software, and audiocassettes are reviewed in the third section. Each review includes: (1) author, publisher, cost, subject area, and intended users; (2) content description; (3) primary teaching procedures; and (4) critical evaluation of the materials.
