From the Courtroom to the Classroom: Presentations and Materials

Instructions for Judges and Attorneys

Below are some steps to help prepare yourself for the upcoming classroom visit.

  1. Volunteer for a visit. If you have not done so already, please use the scheduling tool to sign up for a class you want to work with.
     
  2. Get in touch with other volunteers. CRF will send a confirmation email to the teacher, judge, and the two attorneys once a team is set. The confirmation will provide contact information for each team member (judge, attorneys, and teacher).
     
  3. Arrange classroom visits. One of the attorneys is responsible for scheduling the classroom visits and relaying important information to the team. This includes verifying the school has access to a laptop, screen and projector, or bringing your own for the presentation.
     
  4. Review lessons and presentations. Please familiarize yourself with the PowerPoint presentations and "Judges/Attorneys - Preparing for Your Visit" (PDF).
     
  5. Download and print handouts. The attorney should download the presentations and the student handout, and bring copies to take to the visit.
     
  6. Enjoy working with the students during your two classroom visits. Please feel free to call us if you need anything!
     
  7. Complete program evaluation. After the second visit, complete the online evaluation to provide feedback and documentation.
