U SCHOOL – CONSTITUTION WORKSHOP
U School is a program run by the University of Alberta Senate that aims to introduce and connect students in grades 4 through 9 from socially vulnerable, Aboriginal (First Nations, Métis and Inuit) and rural communities to the University of Alberta. Classes, with their classroom teachers, attend a week-long immersion experience on campus led by our U School staff team.
The Centre has developed a Constitution Workshop for grade 6 students about Confederation, the Constitution, and the division of powers between the federal and provincial governments in Canada. Law students volunteer to teach these workshops, which include a trip to the law school moot court room where students present arguments to a law student judge about whether health care should be a provincial or a federal power.
