Online Resources for Students and Teachers

NEW! Click HERE for a new video unit “Comparing State and Federal Courts.” This collection of materials was created through a partnership between the District Court, the Judicial Learning Center in St. Louis, the Civic Education Committee of the Supreme Court of Missouri, and the Department of Citizenship Education of the Missouri Bar.

NEW! Click HERE for a collection of online resources for teaching and learning about the judicial branch, which we hope will be helpful during the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis.

Please visit www.JudicialLearningCenter.org for learning resources and activities on the judicial branch. The site features content-rich areas for students, teachers, and the public. The Student Center helps learners of all ages explore the judicial branch of government, and test their new knowledge with interactive Student Challenges. The Educator Center provides a variety of resources for teachers of civics, government, and history. There are simple, printer-ready resources and in-depth lesson plans available to correspond with each topic section.
