Ohio Teachers Learn In-Depth Lesson on Branches of Government

Ohio teachers learned about the three branches of government Tuesday and today at the Ohio Judicial Center and Ohio Statehouse. The teachers were participating in the annual Ohio Government in Action program sponsored by the Ohio Center for Law-Related Education.

The two-day seminar devoted to Ohio’s government and history, which concluded today, was designed for teachers by teachers using the state’s Academic Content Standards for Social Studies as their guide. The professional development opportunity also included information on the Ohio Constitution and Ohio history.

The session on the judicial branch included welcoming remarks by Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor, taking a tour of the Visitor Education Center, observing a Supreme Court of Ohio oral argument session, and lunch with Justices Evelyn Lundberg Stratton, Terrence O’Donnell, Judith Ann Lanzinger, Robert R. Cupp and Yvette McGee Brown.

The Statehouse portion of the program included a tour, visits with Secretary of State Jon Husted and Attorney General Mike DeWine, lunch, and meetings with legislators.
