Going to Court provides a younger generation with an in-depth look at the processes of the U.S. Justice System. This middle grade textbook is a user-friendly, kid-friendly version of a law book to understand civil and criminal trials. It provides a fun and interactive learning process highlighting different types of court systems, how to dispute outside of court, how lawyers prepare for trial, and what happens after it has ended. Divided into two parts for criminal and civil trials, each chapter examines a sample case with writing activities and prompts readers with related test questions. Both sections discuss how civil and criminal cases are similar and different. At the end of each chapter topics are provided for teachers to facilitate a debate. Also included are the Bill of Rights and a listing of the Supreme Court Justices. This engaging textbook that teachers students about the rights they have as citizens and how crimes and arguments are resolved in a judicial setting.
