JPA Classroom.
Howard, Elizabeth; And Others
This instructional guide offers classroom lesson plans that can be used by teachers or police officers with a videotape to present a "Junior Police Academy" (JPA) program for middle school students. The guide also contains lesson plans and student activities to be used independently of the videotape. Following a description of the goals of the program, the guide contains six units that cover the following topics: (1) an introduction to the Junior Police Academy; (2) job descriptions and police technology; (3) high speed chases; (4) conflict resolution; (5) parole officers; and (6) police handling of mentally ill persons. An optional lesson plan presents a scenario of a car theft. Each lesson plan includes an instructor's summary of the lesson, a step-by-step sequence for conducting the lesson, and learning activities. The instructional guide also contains ideas for using the program with examples from other schools, a sample press release, and further information about the JPA program. (KC)
