Period 1 – Criminal Behavior Lesson Plan (12-1-2014)

Criminal Behavior HeaderI will be out today all day in a Restorative Justice training. While I am gone I want you to write a full five paragraph essay on organized crime to help bring back your memory on the material we were studying before you went on break. Use the following format to write your essay:

Paragraph 1 – Introduction. What is organized crime? What are the main groups? For example: Yakuza.

Paragraph 2 – Group #1(Yakuza) – Who are they? What illegal activities do they specialize in? Where are they on the planet? What country did they originate from? Why did they originate at all? What is law enforcement doing to stop them? What would you do?

Paragraph 3 – Group #2 (Russian Mafia) – Who are they? What illegal activities do they specialize in? Where are they on the planet? What country did they originate from? Why did they originate at all? What is law enforcement doing to stop them? What would you do?

Paragraph 4 – Group #3 (Mexican Cartel) – Who are they? What illegal activities do they specialize in? Where are they on the planet? What country did they originate from? Why did they originate at all? What is law enforcement doing to stop them? What would you do?

Paragraph 5 – Closing. Why should the reader care about organized crime? How does it impact us as people?
