Exploring the Rule of Law

During this lesson, students will explore the rule of law through a jigsaw, with various groups of students tackling different aspects of the concept, including judicial independence, equality under the law, and open laws. Students will be provided with quotes and primary sources to dig into their area and then come back to the rest of the class to teach their peers. Students will gain a fuller understanding of the “the rule of law” is and why it is important for us as a society to uphold it.
