Attorney General Mike DeWine
Schools about Ohio Government Videos
(COLUMBUS, Ohio)—In recognition of Ohio Statehood Day (March 1), Ohio
Attorney General Mike DeWine reminded government classes about a series
of five educational videos the Ohio Attorney General’s Office developed
for students. The videos cover topics including the history of Ohio’s
two constitutions, the different branches of Ohio government, and
communicating with elected officials.
“Statehood Day provides an opportunity to reflect upon the rich history
of our great state of Ohio and to get people thinking about how they
can get involved,” Attorney General DeWine said. “We created these
videos to enhance students’ knowledge of government in Ohio and to
encourage their participation and civic engagement.”
The topics for the videos were identified by a panel of Ohio high
school teachers, and they align with state standards. They are:
State Public Policy
Bill of Rights
United States Constitution
The videos were produced by Attorney General DeWine’s office with the
help of current and former state officeholders, including appearances
by Ohio Supreme Court Justice Judith L. French, State Rep. Janine Boyd
(D-Cleveland Heights), State Sen. Frank LaRose (R-Hudson), State Rep.
Kristin Boggs (D-Columbus), State Rep. Mike Duffey (R-Worthington), and
former Ohio Attorney General Betty Montgomery.
The videos are available on the Ohio Attorney General’s website at
www.OhioAttorneyGeneral.gov/CivicVideos. Schools also may request to
receive the videos via email or as a DVD by completing the form
