This past month our American Justice class began learning about the Criminal Justice Process. What happens when you get arrested? What if you need to go to trial? What if you are convicted of a crime?

We went to the experts to find out!

Students met with and interviewed local legal experts -- lawyers and judges -- to find out what happens at each step in the Criminal Justice Process.

How does the system work? After meeting with their legal experts, Students created short video tutorials to help explain and teach others what they learned about the process. Working in small groups -- utilizing collaboration, communication, and creativity -- students gained deeper understanding of our legal system.
