Class Experience

Students will master current factual content, concepts, theoretical perspectives, and historical trends of different subfields of forensic studies.
Students will demonstrate proficiency in communicating effectively in a variety of formats, including verbal, written, and symbolic channels, relevant to forensic investigation, criminology, and presentations in the judicial system.
Students will develop an understanding of the moral and ethical issues surrounding crime and forensic investigation.
Students will demonstrate a clear understanding of major concepts and techniques used in subfields of forensic studies based on their ability to read, interpret, and critically evaluate primary literature; design experiments or conduct independent investigation to test ideas and hypotheses; and interpret data through statistical and graphical packages.
Students will demonstrate the steps of an arson investigation.
Mrs. Collins is a science teacher certified in Ag Education, Science, and Gifted Education. She is always looking for creative ways to engage students in science. 
Students will be completing a fictional investigation at home for this 4 week project. I would estimate that students will spend about 1 hour outside of the hour of class time each week. 
Lab: popsicle sticks, paper, glue, matches (with parent supervision only) Headphones are recommended for the podcast section of this course. At the end of the class, students will be created a visual video presentation of their research. Many students in the past have enjoyed dressing up for this presentation. This is optional but it might be a fun addition to the class. So look for a hat and maybe a button up shirt for that part of the investigation.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No assessment will be given, but positive feedback on the project itself will be given. 
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Parents, this is a unit on arson so students will need to burn a student created popsicle like structure. So please help them on that aspect of the project, and supervise for safety.
