Citizen Education

Justice Talking was the flagship of a multi-media civic education initiative online, in print and in classrooms. Justice Talking and the New York Times Learning Network have teamed up to bring you JusticeLearning.org, a free website for students and teachers that tackles the tough provocative legal issues debated in the courts, in congress and in our classrooms.

At Justice Learning students can find Justice Talking audio and New York Times articles on key issues of interest to students; an interactive guide to the Constitution which includes historical timelines and primary source material from the Congress, the Courts and the Oval Office.

Education World gave the site an A plus, calling it "a superlative site from world class sources" — See for yourself at JusticeLearning.org.

The educational program also develops educational videos and contributes lesson plans and teacher resources to the Annenberg Classroom. On line at Annenbergclassroom.org.
