For a half hour each week, we'll kill a bowl of cereal while learning about the nefarious deeds of the world's best and least known serial killers. What was their upbringing like? When did those close to them start to know something was up? Were they ever caught? How? Are they alive or dead now? What was their favorite cereal? Where did they live? What did they do in their non-killing time? What did the neighbors have to say about them? (You know it was, "They were quiet and kept to...
I am an experienced high school English teacher and unschooling mama with a passion for education, literature, critical thought, and intersectionality. Prior to becoming a teacher, I worked in law enforcement crime scene investigation for several years.
Cereal, spoon, bowl (or trough, depending on how much you like your Capt. Crunch), milk, and a healthy appetite for both nummies and ickies. Oh, and a strong stomach.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
I mean...I think the content speaks for itself. Ya, you're going to want to make sure your kid can handle the deets. Dark kids only need apply. On a serious note, we won't delve into the most gory, graphic details of the individual cases. We're looking more at the individual criminal. That being said, words like "rape," "sexual assault," "dismemberment," etc. may come up. Students who are particularly sensitive to dark topics may wish to be accompanied by an (off-camera) adult (or pet...or stuffy...or blankie.) Methods of murder, additional crimes committed, arrest and trial details, and causes of criminal's death (if applicable) will be discussed. While I understand that students not in class sometimes wander in and out of the room while classes are going on, this is NOT a class where that is advisable. Nobody wants 2-year-old Amanda hearing this class' content and taking those images with her to bed. Please ensure your student is in a quiet, safe, contained space or that they use headphones, so that no class content is leaked to fragile ears.
Additional resources will be given each class if there are any I think will interest the students: documentaries, books, articles, links, etc. None are required.
