These units of study will help students in grades five through nine understand the effects various crimes have on individuals, families, and communities. They can be used by teachers, police departments, boy and girl scouts, and community groups. The units deal with shoplifting, buying stolen goods, employee theft, and vandalism. Each lesson contains a dramatic skit designed to bring home the immediate and far-reaching consequences of crime. The plots are simple, everyday situations that are easy for students to relate to. The skits can be read in class, produced for other classes, or videotaped. Followup discussion questions that involve students in moral decisions are provided. A reading paragraph gives added information on the crime covered in each skit. Puzzles and additional role-playing situations are also provided in the lessons. Answer keys and a bibliography of additional resources are included in the publication. (Author/RM)
