These books are a great asset in any library to let teens know that they are important and deserve a voice. These books may used as a resource to help young people learn how to effectively use that voice to their benefit.
We should add this to our collection to help with our upcoming summer camp program. We do a week about loving our Country, and I’d love to incorporate this into it.
We would add these books to our collection and use them for research projects with students. This is a topic students regularly want to learn more about and choose as a research topic, but we have had trouble finding good resources. These would help immensely!

I would love to add these to our nonfiction collection at the Lyon Township Public Library in South Lyon, Michigan.
I would add these books to our middle school library collection to support our new Civics Curriculum.
I teach at a Behavioral Health facility where many residents have had a brush with the law, including a unit just for adjudicated teenage boys. Many of our patients do not understand the rights and responsibilities they have now, as well as in the future. These books would be great teaching tools for them.
These would be added to the collection at Auburn Public Library
I would use these books with my teen grandchildren, especially my oldest grandson he is almost fourteen years old and has had type one diabetes since he was six years old. My grandson would like to get a tattoo reading “Type 1” however his mother told him by law he needed to be sixteen years old to get the tat. My grandson said he was speaking with a local police officer and was told by him that with his mothers consent he could get it done now, Needless to say now we have research to do and boy would these books help. P.S. he would also like to be a lawyer.
Supporting fifth graders to understand their rights and privileges as citizens of our nation is one of the best contributions I can make as a teacher and citizen of our great nation. The feeling is Excited!
If I win these books, I would use the with my middle school leadership groups, first. We have been talking about using your voice – for good – and being able to implement change. Having these resources available, especially coming from a student’s perspective, would be great!
These books will be great resources for teens and I am especially interested in the rights to privacy and freedom of expression focus and conduct. Some of my middle school students struggle with self expression and acting in appropriate school conduct.
Through these books, students will be able to read about and discuss conduct, bullying, and harassment in a way that is authentic and relatable for teens. My hope is students will see their negative behaviors in these texts and help guide them to a path of making better choices so as to not be escalated and involving the legal system.

I would use these books with both my middle and high school students to help them understand laws and how they can impact them as students.
I work for a special ed collaborative school where many students have had negative experiences with the law; these books would be helpful to teach students tips and resources for navigating their involvement with the law. Additionally, many special ed students and their families do not understand their rights or the services available to them. These books would be a starting point for those kinds of conversations.
These books will be great to use in both my high school and middle school alternative classrooms.
It is extremely vital that students are aware of their rights and responsibilities. Since I teach Sports and Entertainment Marketing, Finance, Financial Literacy, and Business Law this semester, the information within the “Teens and Law Series” would be an excellent resource to incorporate into my lessons. Students would find the material extremely informative and interesting. It definitely would make learning fun and exciting. What a way to make education rewarding for the students!
I would use these books to facilitate discussions on the importance of civic engagement, especially by young people! I am a United States History and Government teacher in New York City and believe the the best way to empower our youth is to help them be informed of their rights. I also teach criminal justice and would love to pull readings from these texts to give to my students for important class discussions.
Kids in our school do a project every year about different topics they think are unfair, etc.
These would be an excellent resource for my social groups that I run as a school based therapist!!
I would like to use these books to help students learn about the law for their futures – to understand their actions and consequences and as career opportunities.
I would use it with my more advanced EL students for something interesting and it would expose them to another possible career option for their future.
I would give these to my teen grandkids, I have a bunch. They may need them for reports in school. And we all need to be knowledgeable about this. Especially now.
I am teaching a post secondary transition special education class for students with mild cognitive disabilities. The program’s objective is to help these students become independent adults who will contribute to their community and society at large. Understanding the law and it’s ramifications is an important part of becoming an adult.
Educating myself, my family, and many others about the law!
I would use these books to better inform the teens I work with everyday in the school about the law and how it affects them. I would use them monthly with my non profit organization Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc. the groups that my organization mentors in our 3 city area. They would be a great resource and a good base for us to talk and have discussion!!
I would use these books to help the children I work with in years 5 and 6 to understand different aspects of the law. I think they would thoroughly enjoy the ‘they broke the law, you be the judge book!
We would use these books with our transition to adulthood support group for our families raising teens with disabilities and the teens themselves.
I believe these awesome resources would be great additions to our school based programs, school therapist and our case managers to utilize as they are dealing with those topics in a teens life.
My library system maintains a library in our County Juvenile System. This information is constantly sought by its residents. We would use them for these teens as a needed resource of information.
My daughter wants to be a lawyer (she’s 16) and these will definitely help her understand the legal system better.
I would use these to help guide sessions with teenagers I work with in a High School as a school based therapist. Books are great resources to supplement discussions!
