PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The fundamentals which apply to criminal law, in detail in Jeopardy game format. This is a complete powerpoint show of 53 slides, which can be imported into smart boards, with these categories: Fatal Offenses, Personal Offenses, Property Offenses, Participatory Offenses, and Defenses. I am a lawyer who has practiced law, taught it in the classroom and sold a best selling textbook. The class can silently read the case in the classroom via this slideshow. Then you can move them into other activities which I also list here. In teaching law in the community college classroom, I discovered one had to be inventive in transcending the boredom that many students face with legal subjects. I used my creativity to overcome this difficulty. I used a lot of my own visuals (as an artist). I briefed cases in understandable language about landmark decisions which changed our lives. I devised role plays for students to act with me in front of the class. I played the lawyer to them in many different legal roles as client. We played games like Jeopardy. As these methods took hold in my classroom, the interest level spiked much higher and the students approached the law with a lot more interest and energy. Over time, this also decreased the amount of work I had to do in the classroom as the materials took over the work for me. It is my hope that you can bring this same higher level of involvement and creativity to the law in your classroom. These materials should also work with somewhat bright high schoolers as often my community college students were at a high school level.

I may not be very powerpoint proficient. My only problem is that the system in the classroom allows me to project from my laptop directly to the screen. I need to be able to separate the answers to they are not visible to the students before it is time. How do I do that?

Also, there is no way to tell which questions have already been selected. That is solved by having someone keep track throughout the game. Otherwise the previously selected questions still appear - sometimes we forget and students select the same one twic.

Otherwise - everything else is great. Beautifully designed. I even love the color. I thought it would be complicated, but clicking on a question immediately takes me to the specific slide in question. With the use of my side bar and I can select the answer, then return to the main slide.

I have each question on its own slide and each answer on its own slide. So I can't understand how your students can see the answers UNTIL you click on the slide with the answer. The way you mention showing it is the same way I did it. I projected from my laptop too. The answer did not show until I clicked on it. As far as keeping score on the questions, this was a template I got for creating these shows. I do not have any ability to create my own game shows, unfortunately! Thus, the only way I can suggest scoring is to make one overall print of the whole show and place one student in charge of keeping track of it each time. If you write me at the general question section of this site, not attached to a specific product, the site will send your question to me privately. We can end up writing back and forth in email that way without anyone else seeing our addresses. Maybe I can better understand the problem you are having that way. Carol

Carol, I am an instructor in Criminal Justice. My background is law enforcement with a Master's in Criminal Justice. I will be teaching our Criminal Law course for the first time this coming quarter. I will be getting resources from another instructor who is a lawyer and former prosecutor. I am wondering how the fundamentals ppt and some of your others may fit in this basic Criminal Law course. It is an associate's degree program. Thanks,
Frank Plunkett

I too taught for the associate degree. One big problem I needed to resolve was the wide disparity of ability, prior education and big socio-economic gulfs among my students. I was also given very large classes. I learned by trial and error and the number one thing I learned was that just text in any kind of presentation was a disaster. Hence, I began to combine my art skills with my law skills. This made an enormous difference, We went from an annoying level of background whispering to a silence where you could hear a pin drop. If I do a presentation that is just text, I find some other way of upping the entertainment value. Sometimes for my husband, also a lawyer and an instructor, I will put together a presentation for him when he complains about sheer exhaustion from three hours of lecturing, My approach removes that burden and he can deliver the teaching assignment with a lot less work and energy. He is currently exhausting himself with a three hour ethics course. I am offering to put together. presentation for him. I figure he should cave any day now.
