Product Description
The following is an application activity in Sociology for the unit of study on Deviant Behavior.

This activity asks students to apply their knowledge of the "four types of punishment" (deterrence, incapacitation, retribution, and rehabilitation) to create punishments for 10 deviants whom are each guilty of committing a different crime.

For each "criminal" (deviant) students are asked to do the following based on the crime they committed:
- Determine which of the four types of punishment will be used
- State the "goal" of the type of punishment they chose
- Create a punishment which matches the "type" and "goal"

This is a terrific application activity which allows students to display their understanding of the types of punishment and allows the teacher to check for understanding and mastery at the same time.
Students really get into this activity.

For this activity I have students pair up and work together and I tend to use this as a formative assessment to check for mastery.

They always seem to be much "harsher" then a real judge would be while coming up with their punishments.
