My Students

Students come into my Forensic Science class because they are curious and want to try out a totally new course. I love the class because it is chosen by students who are interested in being interested about a subject they may have heard of but not know much about. I try not to disappoint!

I make sure not to fill-up their notebooks with notes or lecture, instead we do hands-on activities, have open-discussions and do engaging group projects that build skills and stimulate curiosity.

My students enjoy the portfolio model instead of testing, where they get to put artifacts of their work and organize the information in creative ways on their own sites. They like the fact that they can transport this artifact of their work to a job or college interview.

My Project

These hand-held materials will serve my students curiosity by allowing them to analyze their structure and draw significant details about the person. By holding the bone replicas, students will literally be doing the same work as PhD forensic anthropologists. This is the type of experience that has the most impact, and can lead to a student choosing a career or going on further in their education as the work of scientists becomes demystified and accessible in their minds.

Students will use the bones to simulate a crime scene where their is only a skeleton left.

They will conduct a mock investigation of a crime scene using their past skills in evidence collection, crime scenes and other forensic techniques to solve the case.
