Criminal Behavior Header

I have to be gone today because all Social Studies teachers are attending an academic conference on campus. While I am gone you are going to attempt to answer the questions you developed about Prot yesterday using Costas Levels of Thinking and Questioning. A copy of these questions can be found on I want you to write the question and give a complete answer with evidence to support your claim. Do not write a quick simple response or you will not receive much credit for it. While I am gone this will be a great opportunity to critically think about the case subject we have been studying and attempting to diagnose. The list of questions you will be answering are written below accompanied by the person who wrote the question. If you are confused as to what the question is asking then ask the person who wrote it what they were trying to ask.
