Criminal Behavior Header

Today’s Topic –

Criminal Profiling (Day 2)

Teaching Objective –

Today students will be practice working as a profiling team to catch a serial killer before the actual police did back in the 1980’s when this killer was finally caught.

Teaching Agenda –

Task #1  (Individually) – Brief verbal review of what was discussed yesterday.

Task #2 (Individually) – Re-introduction to criminal profiling. Notes can be downloaded by clicking here ->Notes on Criminal Profiling

Task #3 (Individually) – We will finish watching the segment on H.H. Holmes from Friday that I wanted you to see. While we are doing this I want to practice the concept of developing questions about the material we have just learned to make yourself practice thinking critically. While we watch the rest of this segment each student will develop a level 3 Costas Levels of Thinking and Questioning question. After the segment is over I will post several of the questions you developed on the screen for us to answer.

Task #4 (Groups) –  Today we will be working in groups to attempt to successfully profile a killer before investigators did. Information has been left off today’s post. I don’t want to risk anyone doing research on this case before we try it in class. It would defeat the purpose of the whole exercise.
