How do I use this resource?
People's Law School has developed numerous lesson modules, each centered around a law related topic that could affect a newcomer to the province. Each lesson module is designed for instructors who work with newcomers, and contains general resources essential to the module (such as a booklet on each topic, and in some cases videos). Most lesson modules will also have one or more instructional package that vary based on Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) level.
Instructors should familiarize themselves with the source material (especially the topical booklets from PLS upon which each module is based), and then explore the downloadable lesson plans, worksheets and assessment tools available in each instructional package, depending on the CLB they are teaching at.
- Consumer Law
- Driving in BC
- Elder Care
This list should contain all 15 topics as lesson modules eventually
