Objectives/Planned Outcomes Improving student achievement in science and math is the Foundation s only grant-making interest. In this section, tell us exactly what student learning objectives you will reach by conducting the proposed project. The objectives should be realistic, directly related to the project, measurable and attainable within the time period of the project. Please revise to use actual numbers. The course specific objectives are; Students will: 1. Demonstrate the proper use and care of scientific equipment 2. Observe and practice safe procedures in the lab 3. Apply the components of scientific processes in the classroom and lab 4. Communicate results of scientific investigations in oral, written, and graphic form. 5. Describe the growth and development of Forensic Science through history. 6. Apply crime scene investigation methods to recording and sketching data from a crime scene 7. Explain the ways to collect and preserve evidence from a crime scene 8. Distinguish between physical evidence and eye witness evidence as to reliability and validity. pg. 3

4 9. Analyze fingerprint patterns and relate them to the identification of individuals 10. Explain and apply the different methods of latent fingerprinting. 11. Identify the origin of the impressions from both footwear and tire treads 12. Describe and apply methods to identify hair, fiber, and blood evidence. 13. Distinguish between class and individual characteristics of firearms. 14. Describe presumptive and confirmatory evidence. 15. Describe and apply the importance of genetic information to forensic science 16. Use the process of gel electrophoresis to identify banding patterns in DNA 17. Analyze blood spatter patterns in relation to speed height and direction 18. Describe techniques used to determine the validity of questioned documents. With respect to all of these objectives students will perform experiments and conduct hands on activities they will repeat the procedures until they have achieved at least an 85 % mastery before they can proceed to the next unit. The objectives of this project are: 1. All students will use critical thinking, decision making, and problem solving skills 2. All students will demonstrate personal management skills and demonstrate the ability to work effectively in groups. 3. Students will select appropriate electronic media for research and evaluate the quality of information received. 4. Students will write in a clear, concise, organized language that varies in content and form for the various purposes and audiences. 5. Students will listen actively to their group members and to members of the other groups during oral presentations. 6. Students will demonstrate a number sense and will perform standard and numerical operations and estimations on all types of numbers and scientific data (chromatography, measurement, and data collection). 7. Students will develop a spatial sense and the ability to use geometric properties, relationships, and measurement skills to model, describe, and analyze crime scene evidence. 8. Students will demonstrate an understanding of the concepts and techniques of data analysis, and probability and will use these to model situations, solve problems, and draw appropriate inferences from data. 9. Students will demonstrate problem solving and decision making skills reflected by formulating questions and hypotheses, planning experiments, conducting systematic observations, interpreting and analyzing data, drawing conclusions, and communicating the results of these experiments. 10. All students will integrate mathematics as a tool for problem-solving in science, and as a means of expressing and modeling scientific theories. 11. Students will demonstrate an understanding for the integration science and technology and develop a conceptual understanding of the nature and use of technology. 12. Students will gain an understanding of natural laws as they apply to motion forces, and energy transformations. 13. Students will learn democracy in action and how to participate in the constitutional system of government, and the format of a trial by jury. Section 4. Methods/Strategies Improvements in science and math education outcomes can be achieved using a variety of methods, materials and strategies. What exactly do you want to do in your classroom that will produce the outcomes described in Section 3? Please describe the nature, duration and intensity of your contact with students for this project. What will the teacher(s) and students be doing differently? Provide at least one sample lesson plan to give us an idea of what a class would be like with your project. pg. 4

5 Students at our school are enrolled in 94 minute block period that meet every other day. This forensic class was originally designed to be a semester course, but with administrative approval we are offering a second semester of filed studies. We will be the only school in our state offering this option to our students. Our school population is comprised of 1300 students 99% of who receive free or reduced lunch. The goal of this program is to provide the students that we serve with career opportunities and alternatives that lead to careers in STEM programs. Following the traditional Madelene Hunter model, a typical lesson for these students would involve a 5 to 10 minute anticipatory set that provides students with a picture prediction of a set of evidence that lends itself to the objective for the day. Example the students would be shown a picture of simulated blood spatter evidence they are asked to list all of the things they observe in the picture, all of ways that they believe the evidence was generated and all the things that they would like to know more about with relation to the evidence that they have seen. This typically takes 3-5 minutes. There is then a whole class discussion and listing on the board of all of the observations that the student have made and the things they would like to know more about. This section of the lesson typically takes 7-10 minutes. This leads them into a discussion of the day s lesson. The students then have a directed reading passage about the objective and will define the vocabulary words that are necessary for the understanding of the section. This leads to the input section of the lesson where the teacher discusses the article just read and the vocabulary from the reading passage with the students. Also the salient points of the objective are discussed and the students will take notes using the Cornell notes format and adding diagrams to the notes sections where appropriate. Then the teacher models the lab activities and techniques that will be used for that days and successive day s lesson. The students participate in a guided practice simulated crime scene and then will have an independent investigation that involves application of the techniques used and analysis of the evidence provided in order to solve the situation presented. Each student must solve the situation with at least an 85% percent accuracy rate in order to move on to the next lesson. Before and after school sessions, elective time and Saturday sessions will be provided for students to master the competencies and objectives presented. Guest speakers from the state crime lab and local medical school will provide their expertise on the specific objectives and activities performed by the students. In addition, the text used will be used as a reference only and the majority of instructional content will come from primary source documents and internet sources, Section 5. Discussion of Alternatives In Section 4, you described your choice of methods, materials and strategies for producing desired student outcomes. Discuss other possible ways of reaching the same or similar outcomes and tell us why you rejected them in favor of those you described in Section 4. I have observed other teachers attempting to infuse forensics into the traditional classroom without using anticipatory information and without providing written background and vocabulary instruction. These students enjoyed the hands on activities but failed to connect the information to prior knowledge and did not gain the full benefit from the time and expense that was involved in the lesson. These same teachers relied almost solely on textbooks and not on primary source documents. Although texts touch on some of the topics in forensics the depth required for content mastery is lacking. Section 6. Project Management List and describe activities that will have to be managed by you and/or others to ensure the project will operate successfully. For example, if other teachers are involved, describe how they will be communicated with; if materials have to be purchased, describe who will oversee the purchasing process; and if there are questions of safety and/or security describe how will they be resolved. Please include resumes of project managers where possible. Once awarded the grant funds will be deposited into a specific account for grants that can only be accessed with my signature and the signature of the principal. The equipment and supplies will be kept in pg. 5

6 a locked storeroom with only two keys. The office manager will be in charge of placing the orders and signing for them when the items are delivered. Some of the materials will be consumables and will be replenished using additional grant funds from other sources and from school district funds The nonconsumable materials will be stored in a closet with only two keys mine and my principal s. pg. 6

7 Section 7. Project Timetable Please devise a concise timetable that shows all the key project activities and estimates the amount of time each activity will take. For this section you may create a simple chart or list of key deadlines and project elements. The project launch activities will coincide with Jim Hill High School s centennial celebrations tentatively scheduled for the Fall of The Jim Hill High School school-community will celebrate 100 years of academic and civic achievements along with representatives from the state legislatures, congressional districts, school adopters and public and private supporters.
