Period 1 – Criminal Behavior Lesson Plan (2-2-2015)

Criminal Behavior HeaderMorning All,

Sorry I can’t be with you today. While I am gone I want you to do the activity below.


Step 1 – Form into your groups of four.

Step 2 – You will need one piece of paper for the group. Sign all your names on the top right.

Step 3 – You will see a list of questions below. As a group discuss these questions. Each person must come up with their own answer. When you are ready one person at a time will act as the scribe for the group and write everyone’s answers down with a dash followed by the name of the person who said it. You will each be taking turns writing. When you are done there should be four different types of handwriting on the paper. Have the sub sign the top left side of the paper to show you completed it during class. When I see you again I will be collecting your work from today. An example of how your paper should look is also below.
