Criminal Justice + Law Citizenship CCRC

Produced by the CCRC (Criminal Cases Review Commission) with EC Resources. 5 hours of highly-detailed Citizenship lessons in this complete crime unit with 39 slide PowerPoint, 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 (PSHE, RSE and Citizenship specialists) 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!
