Periods 2,3 – Criminal Behavior Lesson Plan (8-21-2015)

Criminal Behavior HeaderTopic:

Escalation of Stalking behavior



Unit S.M.A.R.T. Goal:

Students will be able to identify types of stalkers in 3 of 4 trials with 85% accuracy.

Today’s Objective:

Students will be applying their introductory level knowledge to a new stalking case in order to analzye behavior escalation and identify which type of stalker they believe Walter to be.




Task #1 – On the board today are the units in the order that I last taught them. Before we start class today I would like you to list the units in the order that you would like to learn them so I can see if they need to be changed or added to.

Task #2 – While we are surveying I would like to ask you about if you would be interested in participation tickets for rewards such as homework passes.

Task #3 – After we have that taken care of this we will be adding to our stalker information in the form of a behavior escalation chart. This chart will be put into your reference notebook.
