Summary

Experience Criminal Justice provides an environment for students to apply the foundations of the Criminal Justice system to interactive and assignable activities online. Students will read about the foundations of Courts, Cops, and Corrections in the streamlined, brief text, and then apply those foundations online as they use their own discretionary skills in You Make the Call videos and other online activities. Should officers issue a ticket to every single person who gets caught speeding? Students find out how to make their own decisions and learn that the Criminal Justice system isn’t all black and white. Experience Criminal Justice is assignable, tied to student learning outcomes, and is completely integrated with Blackboard.
