Crime Prevention Teaching Kit #2.
Commercial Union Insurance Companies, Boston, MA.
Three lesson plans for grades seven through nine explore the social, moral, and financial impact of auto and bicycle theft and drinking and driving. Used individually or together as a complete unit, the lesson plans contain dramatic skits derived from real-life experiences of adolescents. Students simulate tough decision making in the face of conflicting pressures. The open-ended nature of the skits encourages students to focus on the consequences of criminal involvement. The skits can be read in class, produced for other classes, or videotaped. Followup discussion questions are provided. In addition to the dramatic skits, the lesson plans also include brief readings about the crimes covered in the skits. Following the readings are a variety of skillbuilding activities designed to provide students with reinforcement in the basic skills. All of the skits, readings, and activity exercises can be thermofaxed for duplication and distribution to students. The appendices contain answer keys, descriptions of three posters which accompany the kit but which are not included, and a bibliography of films, filmstrips, games, cassettes, and transparencies.
