Criminal Justice Reform

Criminal Justice Reform

In this multi-week unit, students dissect the American criminal justice system by creating their own laws and applying them to real criminal cases. Optionally paired with the novel Monster by Walter Dean Myers, the unit begins with students running a mock trial for Batman using a flowchart to demonstrate the steps most criminal suspects encounter. Students then team up to design their own criminal justice systems by establishing laws on twelve topics ranging from drug policy and mandatory minimums to police body cameras and juvenile detention. Using Twine, an online tool for interactive storytelling, teams walk through seven real-world cases. The outcome of each case is determined by that team’s previously established laws and by real-time decisions made on behalf of various stakeholders. Topics addressed: The American criminal justice system - laws, policies, politics, history and examples of real criminal cases Primary CT concepts: decomposition and algorithmic thinking. Students approach a massive social justice topic one policy and one case at a time, slowly developing their knowledge and coming to understand the broader implications. Also, students learn the key steps criminals encounter as they are processed through the criminal justice system and how changes to that process lead to new outcomes. Students will be able to: Evaluate criminal justice policies and implement changes to existing laws Apply their modified criminal justice policies to real-world criminal cases Understand the elements of the criminal justice process common to all cases Materials: Criminal justice flowchart (printed large or projected) Criminal Justice Reform web app Lined paper or a Google Doc assignment where students can record written responses to questions posed throughout each real-world criminal case Copies of Monster by Walter Dean Myers, if students will be reading it during this unit Prep: Print the criminal justice flowchart as large as you can, or decide that you will project it for your students Create team codes in the Criminal Justice Reform web app. Each team of 2-4 students will need their own team code.

Ethics Card Sort: Death Penalty

Ethics Card Sort: Death Penalty

The issue about whether or not society should execute convicted murderers is highly controversial.

In countries where the death penalty does exist, a large number of those on death row are often people who are foreigners, outsiders or misfits.

Movie Guide: 13th (Netflix documentary)

Movie Guide: 13th (Netflix documentary)

This 90 minute documentary produced by Netflix chronicles the trend in mass incarcerations, with emphasis on its impact on African American males. It follows trends in legislation through the Nixon, Reagan, Bush and Clinton presidencies and how policy decisions have negatively impacted minorities disproportionally. It also examines the role of ALEC in crafting legislative policy and how member corporations directly benefit from increased mass incarcerations. This documentary would be excellent for any Ethnic Studies or Social Studies class where you are discussing civil rights, racial disparities, and how current legislative policies affect populations differently in the US. Download contains 30 questions that accompany the documentary chronologically and a list of suggested follow up activities for students to take their learning to the next level around the issue.

A level politics taster session

A level politics taster session

A taster session for students considering taking up A level politics. It is designed for those centres taking the USA option of Edexcel, but could be adapted e.g. for AQA or other boards. It involves a discussion, a card sort, a look at a short video and the use of predictions and data. I’ve used it for a 30 minute session and for a longer 50 minute session, but drew out the discussions more in the latter.
