Juvenile Justice 2013 (X Block)

In their Government class, students learned various aspects of the criminal justice system, with a focus on understanding how Court precedents influence the interpretation of the Constitution. They chose a specific research topic related to issues surrounding Mass Incarceration (the phenomenon where large segments of U.S. society - 2.4 million total - are currently behind bars), such as "Stop & Frisk" policies, Private Prisons, Incarcerated Women, the War on Drugs, Juvenile Justice, and Immigration Detention. After creating individual fliers on their topic, students were grouped together, and given the task of creating a 4-5 minute film.
