- Celebrating Law Day 2016 – This year marks the 50th anniversary of perhaps the nation’s best-known U.S. Supreme Court case, Miranda v. Arizona. The Miranda Warning has become ingrained in law enforcement and has permeated popular consciousness through countless recitations in films and television shows.
Yes, we’ve all heard Miranda but how much do we really understand? The multi-part series of features will dig deeper into the background, meaning, Constitutional principles, rights and protections associated with this year’s Law Day theme, Miranda: More than Words. Complete with an 18 page teaching guide with graphic organizers, this series includes engaging lessons easily adaptable for differentiated instruction. The guide also has a listing of web links to many other free, related, educational resources. All components of this project are FREE and available for download at www.nynpa.com/nie/lawday.html.
