PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Police Incidents Discussion Guides
Interactive Lessons for Grades 7-9 and Grades 10-12

Controversy surrounding police incidents is nothing new! What is new is young people’s exposure to them through television, social media, and the Internet. Provide your students with a safe and supportive environment in which to learn about such incidents objectively and to share their thoughts and feelings appropriately with these discussion guides.

Our easy-to-implement guides, customized for learning at two levels, include:
 Background information and reference material
 Introductory whole-group activity
 Exploration-based engagement for cooperative groups
 Opportunities for authentic discussion
 Three options for response/enrichment
 Multiple assessment opportunities

Students will exercise a variety of reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills in an authentic setting as they explore this timely topic. Our discussion guides foster higher-order thinking as students challenge perspectives, question status quo, support claims, and apply learning to real-life situations.

Extend learning beyond a single class period with one or more of these options, included in the discussion guides:
Persuasive Writing - individuals or groups defend a stance on use of less-lethal technologies such as pepper spray or Tasers.
Critical Thinking - students examine a situation from differing points of view and predict possible outcomes.
Mock Trial - the whole class takes part in examining an actual police incident by role-playing the elements of a criminal trial.

These open-ended activities engage students and allow for a variety of learning abilities. All materials needed for implementation are included!

Police incidents surrounding use of force are an important current events issue. Open-ended exploration of this topic will complement any English or Social Studies curriculum and make a lasting impression on students.
