Period 1 – Criminal Behavior Lesson Plan (9-30-2014)

Criminal Behavior HeaderTopic:

Stalking

Objective:

Students will peer review each other’s thesis in order to better develop their own.

Agenda:

Teacher’s Note – Today will be the summative assessment for the Stalking Unit.

Task #1 – Today you will have 55 minutes to write a five paragraph essay about the Richard Farley v Laura Black case. You will be analyzing why Richard Farley was so obsessed with Laura Black. Remember you can have any claim you want to explain his obsession. The catch is that you have to be backing up each of your claims with evidence.

Task #2 – At the end of the 55 minutes you will be turning in what you have gotten done. Since this is a summative assessment that means it will be worth more than normal assignments.

Task #3 – Now we will begin our introduction to organized crime unit. I will show you three video clips and you will make five behavioral observations about organized crime life from these clips. At the end of each clip we will do a quick share out of our observations.

Clip #1 – Untouchables Clip – A Kind Word and a Gun 

Clip #2 – Untouchables Clip – Batter Up

Clip #3 – American Gangster – Somebody or Nobody

Task #2 – We are going to popcorn read the Fact Situation pages 11 and 12 out loud as a group. This is to make sure we all are getting the same information about the case. While we are doing this we are going to be highlighting and underlining important facts of the case.
