LEARNING PATH:

Learning Objectives: Chapter-opening learning outcomes spotlight what’s important.

Visual Summary: Interactive graphic that captures key concepts as a means of both previewing and reinforcing reading. The Visual Summary enables students to see how the key concepts fit together and get more information about each concept.

Reading: Convenient e-reader with integrated visuals and easily accessible notetaking, flashcard, ReadSpeak, and Questia apps.

Video Case: Timely news video connects course concepts with the real world. Students answer five multiple-choice questions relating the news story to the learning objectives in the chapter and receive feedback to help them make the right connections.

You Decide Scenario: Places the student in the role of a criminal justice professional. In the first part of the assignment, Choose, students must make two reasoned decisions based on the information in the scenario and what they learned in the chapter, with the second decision they make being determined by their first decision. The concluding feedback helps tie the concepts in the scenario back to the learning objectives in the chapter. In the second part of the assignment (You Justify), students must write a short essay explaining the rationale behind their decisions. Rubrics provided on the instructor companion site.

Exam: 25 multiple-choice questions that test students on the key concepts in the chapter.

Additionally, every 3 or 4 chapters – at the end of each part in the text – students will find: Writing Skill Builder: A 2-part activity consisting of the Writing Review – 2-3 exercises that review basic writing skills (sentence structure, citing sources, etc.) – and the Writing Practice, an essay prompt where students apply the CJ decision-making model to a criminal justice scenario and practice the specific writing skill they just reviewed. Rubrics provided.

Finally, MindTap offers:
Careers in Criminal Justice App. A career rolodex, video interviews with practicing criminal justice professionals, career planning information, and much more.

Pathbrite App. The Pathbrite App enables students to build electronic portfolios through the Pathbrite ePortfolio platform. Help students demonstrate their full set of skills and experiences, beyond GPA – to empower students to better differentiate themselves from other candidates.

Study Skill Builder. A quick review of basic study skills – managing time, using the textbook effectively, taking notes, etc. – in addition to brief writing and presentation guides.
