 Tips to Enhance Session 22:

 
 Web Resources: 
 

 Community Resource People:

  • Police officer: Can share statistics, consequences, and information regarding property crimes in your community.

Keep in mind that you should give the CRP the session materials at least one week before he or she will participate in your class.

 

 Service-Learning Project Ideas:

  • Short Project:  Students can create posters for each type of property crime, and display them throughout the school building. The posters should include the name of the crime, the definition, a picture or illustration of the crime, and a way to prevent the crime.
  • Medium-Length Project: Students can become engaged in cross-age teaching. They can use NCPC’s Seniors and Telemarketing Fraud 101 (PDF) booklet to teach seniors to avoid telephone scams.
  • Long Project: Students can create an audio public service announcement concerning a property crime that is often committed in their community. Students can center the message around the costs and consequences of engaging in the specific crime, and end the announcement with a message of prevention.
