  1. Monday 12 September 2011Topic: Observations & Witness Memory DO NOW (in your notebooks) Look through your hw from the weekend. Which senses do we use most at crime scenes? Why do you think we don’t use the others as much? How can we improve a crime scene to use all the senses? OBJECTIVES • Describe how sense of smell is utilized for investigations. • Explain why critical thinking is necessary when interviewing witnesses and persons of interest. HOMEWORK • Read “Common Scents” article about police dogs and answer the corresponding questions on a piece of looseleaf. AGENDA • Sharing of hw ideas/do now • Super sniffers activity pt. 1 • Critical thinking group reading

  2. Give & Get!Swapping information from the hw/do now • In the graphic organizer, fill in the boxes next to HW of what you were able to brainstorm. It’s ok if you can’t fit everything in, or couldn’t think of enough to fill the boxes. • Move to other tables and gather information from classmates that you DON’T already have until all boxes are filled in. OBJECTIVES Describe how sense of smell is utilized for investigations. Explain why critical thinking is necessary when interviewing witnesses and persons of interest.

  3. Super Sniffers pt. 1 • With your neighbor, read the information on the cards about police dogs • Decide how to organize the information into a “mindmap” graphic organizer • Once you have determined how to group the information that makes the most sense to you, copy the information into your notes as you have it organized. • MEANWHILE make sure you smell the jar  OBJECTIVES Describe how sense of smell is utilized for investigations. Explain why critical thinking is necessary when interviewing witnesses and persons of interest.

  4. Thursday 15 September 2011Topic: Observations & Witness Memory DO NOW (in your notebooks) Explain what you believe the difference is between an ‘interview’ and an ‘interrogation.’ OBJECTIVES • Explain why critical thinking is necessary when interviewing witnesses and persons of interest. • Explain why witness statements are not always reliable. • Describe the faults of relying upon sense of sight at a crime scene. HOMEWORK • Complete “Super Sniffers” activity report (calculations and questions) AGENDA • Critical Thinking Reading • Super Sniffers pt 2

  5. Critical Thinking • INDIVIDUALLY read the short mystery. Mark any details that you feel are important • Decide as a GROUP what information to put into the graphic organizer • Solve the mystery! • MEANWHILE sniff the jars being passed around (there are 8, labeled A-H) OBJECTIVES Describe how sense of smell is utilized for investigations. Explain why critical thinking is necessary when interviewing witnesses and persons of interest.


  6. Super Sniffers pt 2 • IN YOUR GROUPS • Everyone takes a turn smelling each of the canisters A-H in an attempt to identify the scent that you encountered on Monday • Record every group member’s guesses in the table provided OBJECTIVES Explain why witness statements are not always reliable. Describe the faults of relying upon sense of sight at a crime scene.

  7. Super Sniffers pt. 2 • How well did the class do in locating the odor of interest? • What factors might have played a role in hindering proper identification of the odor? • How do you calculate the percentage of students that correctly identified the odor? • The report is due tomorrow! OBJECTIVES Explain why witness statements are not always reliable. Describe the faults of relying upon sense of sight at a crime scene.

  8. Friday 16 September 2011Topic: Observations & Witness Memory DO NOW (in your notebooks) What did you find difficult about the reading activity yesterday? How might you have done things differently? OBJECTIVES • Use deductive reasoning to decide who committed the murder HOMEWORK • Complete any unfinished classwork AGENDA • What is deductive reasoning? • The Deadly Picnic!

  9. What is Deductive Reasoning? • DEDUCTIVE reasoning and INDUCTIVE reasoning are opposites • DEDUCTIVE reasoning makes conclusions based upon information that is already known • INDUCTIVE reasoning takes conclusions and applies them to new situations OBJECTIVES Use deductive reasoning to decide who committed the murder

  10. The Deadly Picnic! • Each member of the group will receive background information of a murder, and a list of notes made by investigators at the scene of the crime • In today’s activity, your group will answer: • Who was responsible for the murder? • What events surrounded this murder? OBJECTIVES Use deductive reasoning to decide who committed the murder

  11. The Deadly Picnic! • Protocol: • Individually, read the background information and record some important pieces of information in Data Table 1 • Read the investigator notes and record this information in Data Table 2 • Read the notes gathered by police interviews • Answer the questions corresponding to your solving of the crime OBJECTIVES Use deductive reasoning to decide who committed the murder

  12. Exit Ticket: • Which type of reasoning should you try to avoid during investigations and why? OBJECTIVES Use deductive reasoning to decide who committed the murder
