Crime and Punishment! Powerpoint

Crime and Punishment! Powerpoint

This is a useful lesson for exploring issues of crime and punishment and the reasons for punishment. It involves group work where the students are giving 6 case studies and asked to preside as judges and decide which punishments should be given for the offences and why. It also has a slide showing the different punishments available and finishes off with some Biblical quotes. Originally created for an RE lesson but could be easily adapted as a citizenship, Sociology or PSHE lesson.

Referring to stories offers layers of education and experience. In its simplest form a story can be interesting, funny, relaxing or just enjoyable. The individual may experience deeper or greater learning either through listening alone or engaging in discussion. Many examples can be found in stories of how people live and the impact their behaviours have. Young people are invited to explore and discuss such examples and reflect on their own behaviour. Young people are then able to choose and make informed decisions regarding their own lives. Where? To be delivered in a comfortable, relaxed environment, free from interruption. For maximum engagement, young people need to feel safe and secure to be able to trust their surroundings and feel acceptable. How? Boundaries of expectations from group members must be discussed, for example; listening to others without interruption, respecting others’ opinions, speaking politely. Allow silence from those seeking only to listen – they are still learning. Any answer (offered with respect) is acceptable and can be used to further discussion.
