Community Policing in Today's Society STEM Integrated Project

Does the current police/community conflict concern you? Would you like your students to take a active role in improving police/community relations? If so, this is the project for you. In this project, students will take a historical look at the practices affecting policing (immigration in early 1900s, civil rights movement in the 1960s, racial ten…

Controlling Perspective: Understanding the Power of Point of View STEM Integrated Project

In this project, students will explore the ways that our understanding of the truth can be influenced by viewing facts through another's perspective. Students will consider the possibility that the person privileged to tell the story holds the power to control the direction of the narrative. They will discuss ways to uncover other voices and other …
