PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

When the ACLU released the (free) video, "Law & Disorder: Criminal Justice on TV and in Real Life", I knew I had to incorporate it in my Street Law curriculum. Thus, I created this entire unit. It takes about a week to complete. Developed with open-ended and opinion questions, it is designed to allow for ample class discussion of the criminal justice system. You should pause the video very often.

- basic lesson instructions

-Teacher's guide - handout answer key (with additional discussion topics, relevant current events, & BONUS assignments: a socratic seminar topic, TED talk link, and a link to a relevant NPR, "This American Life", segment)
-Exam (2 pages): matching, multiple choice, and short answer (no answer key)

Some Topics Covered: 5th, 8th, & 14th amendments; plea bargains; stop and frisk; habitual offenders; indigent defense; mandatory minimums; public defense attorneys; defendant; prosecutor; incarceration; capital punishment
