Criminal Justice System : Complete Unit of Work

Criminal Justice System : Complete Unit of Work

5 hour, highly-detailed Citizenship unit with 39 slide PowerPoint, complete written scheme of work, teacher introduction letter and 19 well-differentiated and easy to follow accompanying worksheets. This pack has been produced by the Criminal Cases Review Commission in conjunction with EC Resources and Tes. It is most suitably used as a Drop Down Day for KS3, but could easily be used for KS4 too. The unit of work follows the story of Lee, a young man who is convicted of murder. It is up to your class to investigate the crime through mock trials, examining fingerprints and DNA forensic clues and discovering new evidence - all whilst learning an incredible amount about the workings of the criminal justice system and the appeal process along the way. Is Lee guilty? If not, how can he prove it? Can you help? This exciting, engaging and active day has had fantastic feedback from trial schools so far and we know your students will enjoy it too. Please let us know how it goes by leaving us a review! You can find out more about the Criminal Cases Review Commission and the work they do here.

Card Sort: Does Prison Work?

Card Sort: Does Prison Work?

This thought provocative resource aims to help students assess whether prison sentences work. This is a controversial subject with people from all sides advocating different solutions from longer sentences to rehabilitate prisoners to alternatives sentences based in the community. This card sort can be used with a range of abilities and has never failed to get my students excited, engaged, whilst improving their understanding of this difficult topic. When you purchase this resource, you will be able to download a single page Microsoft Word document which includes a learning objective, instructions, two headings cards labelled ‘Pros / Advantages’ and ‘Cons / Disadvantages’ as well as sixteen information cards to be sorted. At the end of the document there is an extension question designed to help consolidate the lesson. This is a fully editable document which can be customised if necessary to suit your students. The aims of this lesson / activity are: Theme: Crime and Punishment Know: How are people supported in prison? Understand: What are the advantages and disadvantages or sending people to prison? Evaluate: Does prison protect society from crime? WILF - What am I Looking For? Identify and describe - How are people treated in prison? Explain - What are the advantages and disadvantages or sending people to prison? Analyse - Does prison protect society from crime? If you like this resource then why not check out my other resources on this topic in my TES shop.

Did you know that the age of criminal responsibility in Wales is ten? In Scotland it is 12. In Wales you can legally leave full-time education at sixteen, whereas in England you have to be 18.

Aimed at KS3 and 4 the lessons cover areas such as: Why do we have laws? How the law affects their day to day life How laws are made and how they can be changed Devolution and the impact it has had on Welsh law Want to access more high quality resources?

The Help study guide (Pre-viewing/reading activities)

This engaging resource can be used either with the film or the novel by Kathryn Stockett.

The resource addresses: slavery,Jim Crow,segregation,civil rights, women’s rights and the wealth gap. There are also some key dates that teachers can build knowledge on as background information and context. Students can explore the time period of the 60s and the pros and cons of living in that time period. Teachers can also use the tasks to discuss Jim Crow and the impact the laws had on community as a whole.
