I am so excited to be starting a new year and getting to know my new students. This is my ninth year teaching a Criminal Justice course and I have some new things planned for this year. I know if we all work together this will be a fun and interesting year.
Course Description: This course is recommended for students in Grades 11-12. Credit: 1 science credit
Prerequisites: Biology and Chemistry.
This is a full year (two semesters) course that focuses on the psychological and sociological science and uses a scientific approach to the investigation of crimes. Students will learn the field’s terminology and basic scientific procedures for the major forensic science fields as they relate to crime scene investigation. Using scientific methods, students will collect and analyze evidence through case studies and simulated crime scenes such as fingerprint analysis, ballistics, DNA fingerprinting, Impression Evidence, Criminal Behavior and Psychology, Hair and Fiber analysis, and blood spatter analysis. Students will learn the history, legal aspects, and career options for the various fields within forensic science and law enforcement.
