The Cincinnati Police-Juvenile Attitude Project; A Demonstration Project in Police-Teacher Curriculum Development to Improve Police-Juvenile Relations. Final Report.
Cincinnati Univ., OH.
This is a curriculum guide for junior high school students and police trainees. It is designed to improve police-juvenile relations through juvenile attitude change and police understanding. Units have been developed for social studies teachers pertaining to the law and law enforcement and for police trainees dealing with the nature of the early adolescent. The junior high school units are discovery and activity units which use audio-visual techniques, games, role playing, and class projects to explore: (1) the world of games, (2) the world of rules, and (3) the world of law. The police training unit uses films, lectures, slides, and tapes to help policemen gain an understanding of their own attitudes as well as those of juveniles. Following the experimental stage of the program, all data was analyzed by means of two statistical programs. Project directors feel that the curriculum units fill an existing gap in the present school and police programs. (EK)
