Justice Essential Skills (2010)

This document, one in a series of fact sheets published by the NWT Literacy Council, defines essential skills -- reading, document use, writing, numeracy, oral communication, thinking, working with others, computer use and lifelong learning – and then offers examples of ordinary people using those skills in dealing with the justice system.

The authors use a hypothetical family made up of mother, father, grandmother and three children. To illustrate numeracy, the authors describe the grandmother looking at statistics on young people in trouble with the law. To illustrate document use, the mother looks at a guide to preparing victim-impact statements.
