In this 10-week course, students will learn about advanced concepts in multiple areas of forensic science and will experience a short mock trial.

Class experience

US Grade 8 - 11
Intermediate Level
Students will improve their understanding of advanced concepts in forensic science.
I have taught forensic science for nearly 20 years, both at the college and high school levels.  I have taught roughly 3000 forensic science students on Outschool, hundreds in college classes, and I have completed nearly 500 other forensic science education programs.  I have written a college course manual on forensic science, and have completed the most thorough cryptanalysis of the Zodiac's coded messages ever undertaken (book forthcoming).  In addition to my forensic science work, I have a law degree (JD) and spent 11 years as an attorney prior to teaching.  I also have a little over 20 years of homeschooling experience.
Homework Offered
Homework is entirely optional in this class. A set of questions related to our weekly topics will be provided for those who want to do a written component.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Assessments are optional. Most of my students do not opt for the assessment route in classes, but for those who do, I will combine an assessment of written assignments (which are optional) and engagement in discussions and the mock trial.
Grades Offered
By default, there will not be grades, but if any students want a grade, I will ask them and their families to let me know during the first few weeks of the class.
While this is forensic science, and there will be cases that cover murders, I will never include any gory details or show any images.  I also never cover any cases involving sex crimes or child abuse.
I will provide all learning materials that I produce.
