Task #1 – We will finish our work and objective from Friday followeded  by our last stalking case.

Task #2 – Here are the steps we started and need to finish today.

Step 1 – HIGHLIGHT the important words and pieces of your section of California’s Stalking Law (2008)

Step 2 – Underline the problem areas in your section. (Ex: words that need to be defined more, parts of the law that are not well written, loopholes.

Step 3 – List the problems you have in your section.

Step 4 – List your groups solutions to the problems you have listed.

Step 5 – Look through the entire law. What are some important things that are missing? Write these sections in. (Ex: If you believe a cyber stalking piece needs to be added write it like you think it should sound and to make sure it doesn’t have loopholes. )

Task #3 – We will look at our last stalking case “Behind the Shield”.  We will be using Costas Levels of Thinking and Questioning to develop questions on the material to make ourselves think about the case at a higher level.
