Going to Court in Minnesota- English Language Learning Curriculum

The Minnesota Literacy Council created this curriculum with ECHO (Emergency, Community, Health, and Outreach) as funded by the Minnesota Judicial Branch. The goal of the curriculum is to educate students about how to prepare for going to court and the resources available to help them navigate the court system appropriately. We invite you to adapt it for your own classrooms.

Unit Overview

This is a 1-week unit where students will become familiar with courts in Minnesota. They will learn about the three branches of government, specifically the Judicial Branch, and discuss the roles of people in court and how courts work.
