They played with the students in the way of scenario simulation, which not only livened up the classroom atmosphere, but also stimulated the students’ enthusiasm to think about problems.In laughter, children learn about laws and rule-making and learn how to abide by them.”The teacher asked the students to discuss in groups how they would make rules if they were rule makers,” said an official from Meilian Primary School.Let the students know how to understand the rules, apply the rules, and how to improve and modify the rules when the rules are unreasonable and unclear, cultivate the students’ awareness of ‘knowing the rules, arguing the rules and obeying the rules’.The course was unique and deepened students’ understanding of legal knowledge.The “New Rain Project” is just like the rain, which moistens things silently and moistens the seeds of the rule of law in the hearts of young people. It slowly breaks the ground and grows, and encourages children to become little citizens who “know the law”, “understand the law” and “abide by the law”.Since its inception, more than 800 volunteer lecturers have participated in the teaching, which has entered 158 primary and secondary schools in Shenzhen and taught 6,302 campus law popularization courses (including 1,500 online law popularization courses), benefiting nearly 310,000 students.With deep ploughing and careful irrigation,”The influence of The “New Rain Program” is growing.
