Experiments in Crime Questions and Answers

Experiments in Crime Questions and Answers

Crime is a multi-billion-dollar business. Crime is also deeply embedded in our social, economic, political, religious and material worlds. But, surely it is wrong that, day after day, year after year, thousands of decisions are taken, millions of lives are disturbed and billions of dollars are being spent without robust evidence as to what is the best course of action for those involved in, affected by, or afflicted through crime. Experiments seek to offer hope, they seek to offer help and they seek to assist in making this world, our world, your world, a better place. Fully loaded with questions and examples from across the world, with 27 sections, 44 tables and diagrams, 203 references and 260 pages, this book aims to:  share rich contemporary examples of experiments in crime that you can read, discuss, learn from, relate to and find out more about  give you insight and inspiration with respect to experiments in crime  introduce the language, terms, tips and traps of experiments in crime  empower you to become more confident, capable and curious about experiments in crime  inspire you to ask questions of experiments in crime and of the evidence they produce  encourage you to look at experimental and non experimental evidence  encourage you to look at real life data and how you can use it to help support and challenge experiments in crime  make you do something: think, talk, listen then act. The 27 sections cover the following areas: In the beginning On everyday life On the RCT family On the advantages and limitations of evidence from an experiment Barriers to doing an experiment in crime Before you get involved in an experiment On consent, concealment and blinding On entry and exclusion On recruitment On random On sampling On the control group On the baseline On outcomes and endpoints On bias On piloting Bullet proof, gold standard and assumption free? On hierarchies of the evidence and other methods On the cycle of evidence and publication On the fate of ideas On the business of reviews On data, data presentation, dirty data and data monitoring On statistics On interim analysis On the number needed to treat, intention to treat and protocol analysis On checklists and integrity of an experiment On ethics

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.

The Death Penalty USA / Capital Punishment USA

The Death Penalty USA / Capital Punishment USA

Power point about the death penalty/capital punishment in the U.S. This is meant to encourage students to think/pair up and discuss during a certain amount of time and then share their thoughts when time is up. You may want to download a new sound at the end of the countdown as mine has probably vanished (I think I used ) . You ought to choose the same sound all throughout your power point so it doesn’t become too much of a distraction. I am also including four informational sheets focusing on the five methods of capital punishment in the U.S. Make sure that your audience can cope with the details about the methods of execution, which are quite horrible. There are many ways of using these sheets, whether you decide to just share the information orally (and maybe simplify), or whether you want to assign groups and have them work on some Jigsaw Puzzle task (cooperative learning). The power point includes questions about statistics, methods, vocabulary and personal opinions. I have only tested this material once in Norway with 15-year-old pupils who have ESL, but it worked quite well as they were engaged and fascinated. Feel free to download and modify as it suits you.
