In this lesson we consider what we understand by the word 'crime'. We will consider the difference between right and wrong and identify where our ideas of this come from. We will also differentiate between civil and criminal law to show what a crime really is.

4 lessons of 6 planned
In this lesson we will investigate some reasons why people might commit a crime. We will consider stereotypes and how we perceive those who commit crime and look at how not all follow these stereotypes.
In this lesson we will look at the role of the police. We consider their part in the justice system and the main powers they have to be able to tackle crime. We will also re-cap on what a crime is to consider what types of issues the police become involved in.
In this lesson we will look at how the media portrays youth crime and compare this to some statistical data about youth crime. We will use a case study to identify how the media uses sensationalization to dramatise youth crime and what a group of young people see are the issues of this, and how they feel this could be a tackled.
