Is this specifically for Lockdown?
I created these materials for an introduction lesson to Walter Dean Myers' novel, but they can be used with any text that focuses on the U.S. justice system! Additionally, materials are editable so that you can tailor both worksheets to your individual needs.
What You Get
A K-W-L Chart that has students consider what they already know and want to know about the U.S. Juvenile detention system or, more broadly, the U.S. justice system (I have students complete the first two columns for a quick do now activity)
A graphic organizer with 5 statements related to the justice system that has students identify their opinion on each (strongly disagree, disagree, neutral, agree, or strongly agree). This organizer was created to be used with Ismael Nazario's TED Talk "What I Learned as a Kid in Jail" but can be modified to support any article or multimedia source that focuses on the topic of the U.S. justice system.
