Description

Class Experience

******PLEASE NOTE: We will discuss topics including institutional corrections, which includes prisons and community corrections which includes probation and parole. Examples will include videos. We will also view and discuss video examples of traffic stops, which depict auto theft and illegal contraband including marijuana and other drug paraphernalia found by the police officer at the time of the traffic stop. These learning resources are used for the purpose of teaching students about the 4th, 5th and 6th Amendment of the Constitution as it applies to due process protections related to the administration of the criminal justice system. I do not show any videos directly from the internet. I personally edit all videos that are used during the course and videos are played directly from powerpoint presentation to ensure that the material is age appropriate and that it free of any inappropriate language or other inappropriate content.********

Students may learn the following topics and sub-topics:

- 1 Crime and Justice in the United States
-- Criminal Justice: An Institution of Social Control
-- Criminal Justice: The System
-- Definition of Crime

- 2 Crime and Its Consequences
-- Definition of Crime
-- Costs of Crime
-- Victims of Crime
-- Categories of Crime
-- Levels of Crime

- 3 Policing: Roles, Styles and Functions
-- Policing in America
-- Police Functions
-- Community Policing

-4 Policing America: Issues and Ethics
-- The Police and the Public
-- 4th, 5th, 6th Amendment - U.S. Constitution
I have been teaching college/university and law school students since 2005 in the areas of law, political science/government, and criminal justice. In addition, I have 15 years of law practice. I have first-hand knowledge and expertise in the area of critical reading, analysis and synthesis. I teach students how develop analysis skills that will advance their critical thinking and effective problem-solving abilities.
All work will take place during class using one or more of the following in-class activities:

- Class polling on Kahoot.com
     - quizzes during class using Kahoot.com
This is a summary of the full listing of class requirements. Please read the full listing upon enrollment to ensure that the class is good fit for your student. *** [[ Please do not allow the student to attempt to take the class while in bed or otherwise laying and/or moving throughout the home while the class is in progress. ]] *** Virtual backgrounds are not allowed as they are a distraction and students use them to get around the requirement that they please not take the class in bed. *** We request that the student use a wired internet source plugged into the internet router instead of WIFI – constant blinking of the Internet and students dropping in and out of the class is disruptive. In addition, it is difficult to communicate with the student when the WIFI is intermittently unstable, as it makes it difficult to understand what the student is saying ((It is best if students can test this technology at least 1 day prior to starting the class.)) *** Participation in-person with continuously enabled video/audio each day of the class is mandatory for (all) students. [This is not a video play-back class]. The class is delivered in real time only. *** Please do not allow the student to attempt to project their video participation in class using an ipad; phone; facetime or other mobile device. *** The student (must) use a desktop computer or laptop sitting securely on a desk or table so that the camera is stabilized at all times throughout the class. Constant movement of the screen or video camera that is used to project the student’s video into the classroom is very disruptive during the class. ***For optimal performance, students should use headphones with a good microphone so that we can communicate efficiently throughout the course. ((It is best if students can test this technology at least 1 day prior to starting the class.)) -- All Course Resources and activities are provided before and/or during class on shared screen -- INCLUGING: 1) Course Videos 2) Course Powerpoints (student downloadable copies provided) 3) Course quizzes (So that the student can participate in anonymous class polling and see other students' answers to the questions, before the initial class, students should navigate to socrative.com and download the app (if the student will be using a smart phone or pad device. If the student will be using the desktop version, the student should be ready to navigate to (KAHOOT.IT) during class. ((It is best if students can test this technology at least 1 day prior to starting the class.)) 4) Course discussion materials including games such as Tic Tac Toe, Jeopardy, etc.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Student progress will be assessed using one or more of the following:
- Kahoot.com and other game-based class activities
- Games such as Tic Tac Toe, Joepardy, etc.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
For the purpose of assessing student progress, engagement and interaction with students, the following third-party tool will be used throughout the class: 

- Kahoot assessment and activity tool. More information about Kahoot may be found by navigating to Kahoot.com.

******PLEASE ALSO NOTE: Attendance by video for all students is a requirement of this course.  We will discuss topics including institutional corrections, which includes prisons and community corrections which includes probation and parole. Examples will include videos. We will also view and discuss video examples of traffic stops, which depict auto theft and illegal contraband including marijuana and other drug paraphernalia found by the police officer at the time of the traffic stop.
