Part of Lesson Plan: Benefits of a quality SAE program.
Activity Overview / Details
Show your class the accompanying video "CSI: Southpark". Ask them to describe what happens in the show "Southpark" (responses should range- but generally should fall into the idea that these crazy kids cause mischief in their small town). After a few responses, ask them if they have ever seen the show "CSI". For those who have, ask them to briefly summarize what happens in CSI (people try to figure out what happens at a crime scene). Next, ask the class what skills the CSI investigators use to do their jobs (observation skills, using tools and equipment, communication, etc.) Today, the class will be similar to Southpark CSI. A bunch of crazy teens will do some investigative work and use their observation and communication skills to draw conclusions about topics and scenarios that may be unfamiliar. Yesterday the class discovered what an SAE is. Review with the class the information they learned about SAEs- what it stands for, the different types, and examples of SAEs that will fit into the different types. This information comes from the SAEP power point presentation. Today we will be discovering new information to add to our current knowledge of SAEs. Specifically, we're going to look at how creating and managing a high-quality SAE can be more than merely a task for this class, but can add some huge benefits to our lives!
