1 OFFICE OF CURRICULUM & INSTRUCTION FORENSIC SCIENCE Grades Prerequisite: Earth Science and Biology Credits: 3 ABSTRACT Forensic Science is the application of inquiry-based laboratory science skills to criminal and civil law. In criminal cases, forensic science examines physical evidence that can be used to establish connections between individuals and criminal events and circumstances. The application of the scientific method is essential to Forensic Science observation, collection of data, classification of evidence, examination of relationships, forming and testing of hypotheses, and the drawing of conclusions are useful for determining the value of crime scene and other related evidence. Students will learn to work in teams and utilize forensic science techniques, critical thinking skills, problem-solving skills, and technology in order to analyze crime scene evidence. The ultimate goal is to provide the students with 21st century learning skills combined with an overall view of Forensic Science which has been subject to increased interest and popularity in recent years. BOE approved 8/26/2014

2 Established Goals: NJ CCCS and/or CCSS: (include technology and 21 st century standards) Enduring Understandings: (students will understand...) Essential (Guiding) Questions: (What provocative questions will foster inquiry, understanding, and transfer of learning?) Learning Activities: (What specific activities will students do and what skills will students know as a result of the unit?) Unit #1: Introduction to Forensic Science 2 weeks B.1-4, C.1-3, D A.1,4,F.2, F6 Forensic Science is the integration of core scientific disciplines. Forensic science involves a variety of careers. How has Forensic Science developed over time due to advances in science, technology and society? How has science become integrated into the practice of law? How do fictitious portrayals of Forensic Science compare to realworld Forensic Science? What services does a crime lab provide to law enforcement personnel? Which professionals make up a crime scene unit? What contributions do the forensic scientists make to an What are the differences between perceived and actual roles of forensic scientists?
