THE LAW: CLASS ASSIGNMENTS AND HOMEWORK
Third Grading Period- Law Enforcement
We began a new unit today: Law Enforcement. We started off with some good, old book work. The entire block was spent working on Part One of the Chapter 12 packet (Criminal Justice)
. (There is one page of the packet that IS NOT included in the electronic file; if you don't have it you can get it in class).
11/4 At the beginning of class we went over the Unit 2 Test and corrected our mistakes for half credit. After that, I passed out Part Two of the Chapter 12 packet and we worked on that for the remainder ofthe block.
10/8 Today we took some notes on search and seizure laws. We had a pretty lively discussion about students' rights at school. We started reading a selection from a book called Teen Rights (and Responsibilities), but we ran out of time.
We finished reading the Teen Rights
handout and took some notes as we read. After that, I passed out an article dealing with the pros and cons of drug testing in schools. We split into two groups and then debated the issue, with one group taking the pro arguments and the other taking the con.
We started class by discussing the debate we had last class dealing with drug testing at school. After that, I distributed copies of a long article that outlines the entire crime scene investigation process (here's a link to the web site: http://science.howstuffworks.com/csi.htm
), and then we broke into groups. Each group was assigned a portion of the article to read and then present to the class. The first three groups presented and then class ended. We'll finish the presentations on Thursday 11/18.
