Task #1 – 

I had been asked to meet with the Leadership Team in “A” building today so I cannot be with you. While I am gone you will be watching a documentary on the case of Stacey Castor. On your own sheet of paper use the following format to analyze the case.




Title – Stacey Castor Case Analysis 

Facts of the Case:
Bare minimum of 15 facts should be listed here. Facts are important details about the case 

Type of Killer:

Use your notes from yesterday to examine her case again and then state what type of killer you think she is followed with evidence. 


This is an academic paragraph of 8-9 sentences where you break down the case and tell the reader the following:

  1. Who is this case about?
  2. What happened and in what order?
  3. What type of killer would you classify Stacey Castor as?
  4. What evidence backs up your stated belief in the type of killer she is?

Note to Substitute:

A seating chart has been left on my desk for you as well as a copy of the lesson plan that you are looking at here on this website Additionally, I came in early to set up a computer and projector for you so students can watch the documentary. You can ask any of the leadership students (see list below) for assistance with starting the movie. Lastly, if need be, another copy of the video documentary on Stacey Castor can be found on the Student Public Server. Any of the leadership students can login to the computer and follow this path ->  Start-> Computer->Student Public -> MrTylersLessons (folder)
