Task #1 –
Today is going to be the last day to Download the powerpoint below by Dr. Mike Aamodt from Radford University. Scroll through his presentation to get familiar with what he is trying to say and do in this work. This presentation is pretty typical of college professors. It is clunky, wordy, and not viewer friendly. After you have gotten familiar with the work go through the presentation and delete / reorganize / rearrange the work into a more viewer friendly format.

The Fall 2015 Criminal Behavior courses did a similar activity with a student developed presentation on the YaKuZa. They took the original version and improved it by deleting, rearranging, and reorganizing the information.

Task #2 –
After you have finished your editing work you will be taking a comprehension quiz on Dr. Aamodt’s work. This is to make sure that you actually read over his work before you started editing.
Task #3 –
I was thinking of adding some additional units to this course, but before I do I want your opinion on if the following units are worth exploring based on the definition of the purpose of this course.
- Terrorism (Think 9/11 & ISIS)
- Piracy (The actual criminal act of piracy. 18th Century to Present. Like Pirates of the Caribbean to Captain Phillips)
If you think of another unit you would like to see taught in this course please include your idea in your opinion e-mail to me.
