Legal Life Skills Curriculum

Our Legal Life Skills Curriculum helps learners recognize legal problems in the workplace while learning essential life skills. Adult instructors gave us input on the topics and content of the six activity kits in the curriculum, and these resources were tested with students in several community-based literacy settings.

What you’ll find in the Legal Life Skills Curriculum:

  • Themes commonly covered in literacy training, with a legal problem component
  • Varied activities to boost knowledge, skills, and personal capabilities
  • Teaching notes with answer keys and suggestions
