Last week, we offered a post on the need for more teaching materials for courses with practicums. Guest blogster Sarah Ricks at Rutgers-Camden Law School has more to contribute on the subject of practical teaching materials:
Carolina Academic Press has recognized the need to provide adjunct and full-time law teachers with practical teaching materials that integrate the teaching of skills and doctrine. The new Context and Practice Series is designed and edited by Michael Hunter Schwartz with input from Gerry Hess: http://www.cap-press.com/p/CAP
Each casebook has a rich Teacher’s Manual, filled with practical exercises, sample exams, and suggested teaching methods.
My own book in the series is Current Issues in Constitutional Litigation: A Context and Practice Casebook (Carolina Academic Press 2011) . Here’s the catalogue: http://www.cap-press.com/isbn/9781594604270
The Teacher’s Manual is over 400 pages.
To further help teachers, my casebook has a companion website including relevant YouTube video, video of guest speakers, and other teaching materials, always being updated: http://constitutionallitigation.rutgers.edu/
Here is a sample chapter: http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=1744353
