The State Bar of Texas Law-Related Education Department has announced the redesign of its website, texaslre.org.
The LRE aims to improve law-related and civic education programs throughout the state through curriculum development and educator training.
The redesigned site features two buttons front and center that provide educators with either professional development resources or lesson plans. The professional development resources includes information on specific programs and links to register for them in the various areas around the state.
The lesson plans are grouped from pre-kindergarten through eighth grade, ensuring that the material—web lessons, games, and links to all its programs—is grade-level appropriate. For pre-kindergarten, for example, content ranges from a history lesson on Columbus Day to a culture lesson on appreciating likeness and differences. The content on the eighth grade lesson plan page includes materials on the creation of the Constitution and the Civil War. Lesson pages for world history, U.S. history, and government are also included.
The site was redesigned to provide educators with easy-to-find useful information. In addition, the site features entry points to LREs programs such as Citizen Bee, Justiceville, 7 Principles of the Constitution, I was the First. Vote for Me! The homepage also features the latest LRE social media updates and upcoming events.
