British Youth Crime
Sunday 26 September 2010
This lesson uses various multimedia resources that I have gathered in an interactive Didapages book entitled British Youth Crime.
The lesson starts with a cover from Time magazine and ends with a series of audio files on the topic.
This book uses three main primary sources:
- a Time cover (UK edition) + an article about this special Time issue from Mail Online
- Data from "Crime in England and Wales, 2007/08 - Findings from the British Crime Survey and police recorded crime." -> http://www.homeoffice.gov.uk/rds/pdfs08/hosb0708.pdf] Home Office statistical bulletin.
I also use these 2 lesson plans (reading comprehension) from Macmillan InsideOut as part of this sequence.
