TIPS: Crime Resistance Strategies, 8. Teaching Individuals Protective Strategies, Teaching Individuals Positive Solutions.
Bass, Martha; And Others
This document is the final component of a K-eighth-grade program on crime resistance. Major objectives of the program are to help teachers promote and maintain positive student attitudes and behavior, assist students in meeting their responsibilities, and help students insure their own and other people's safety and welfare. Specific objectives of this component are to help eighth-grade students explore their responsibility as citizens, accept the responsibility of reporting crimes, become responsible witnesses, learn the processes of juvenile justice, consider the concept of 'unwritten rights,' and explore the possibility of a police state. Activities suggested to reinforce these objectives include analyzing case studies of crime resistance, analyzing cartoons based on crime prevention, taking notes on stories of crime excerpted from newspapers and read aloud by the teacher, discussing issues in class, identifying reasons for the disparity of witness observations in several case studies, writing research reports on crime, compiling sample police reports, and comparing police activities in the United States with police activities in other nations. For each activity, information is presented on objectives, procedures, and materials. Worksheets are included whenever necessary. The document concludes with a student reading list, a resource directory, and a glossary. (DB)
