Cheryl's Weekly Feature


Next term, starting on February 1st, I will be teaching Law 12 for the first time at the Pearson Adult Learning Centre. If you are looking for a grade 12 course, this might be of interest to you. We will be studying Canadian Law and there will be:  assignments, projects, case studies, chapter tests, a field trip to the courts in New Westminster, and one additional bonus- NO Final Exam!

The Law 12 curriculum enables students to become legally literate citizens who:

understand fundamental legal principles including equality, justice, and liberty

recognize and act upon their rights and responsibilities

identify legal elements in problems

prevent or address legal problems in everyday life

apply their learning about the law to their studies, careers, and daily lives

At his best, man is the noblest of all animals; separated from law and justice he is the worst.
