Teaching Forensics


The students have been begging me for a CSI-like class, so this fall I started teaching forensics.  I needed the students to become familiar with forensic science before we started analyzing a crime scene, so I made a PowerPoint embedded with resources from Streaming and DESC.  I plan on pulling other video clips and articles for each test the students will analyze – chromatography, toxicology, fingerprinting, hand-writing analysis, etc..

    I hope you take the opportunity to make a movie using the CSI theme as well. I can’t remember where I saw it, but I think it was AFI that had the great CSI movie by science students. If you need me to find the movie let me know and I will. It would be a great project to incorporate in with this type of teaching! I am glad to hear you are teaching the kids in such an engaging way. They will not forget it!

    Hi Emma

    You might want to take at the website All About Forensic Science (http://www.all-about-forensic-science.com/). In addition to covering all of the major forensic specialties, it has some dedicated CSI pages and a science for kids page which showcases the best science resources aimed at children and younger students; most of which have great resources for teachers as well.

    All the best
