Title: Juvenile Justice

Juvenile Justice
  • Texts
  • On Punishment and Teen Killers
  • Juveniles Dont Deserve Life Sentences

Preparing to Read
  • Using strategies you have employed with previous
    reading selections, quickly survey these two new
    texts, making predictions about the content of
    the texts. Then skim the texts independently, and
    identify five key words or phrases in each text.
    If you are unsure what they mean, try to guess
    their meanings from the context or look them up.
    Circle the words or phrases and write their
    meanings or predicted definitions in the margins.
    Focus on making predictions about the content.

Reading for Understanding
  • Now as a table group decide how you will read
    these texts. You can read them silently to
    yourseves, or take turns reading quietly to each
    other. Dont worry about annotations right now
    just focus on reading with the grain.

Reading for Understanding
  • After reading the two texts independently, answer
    the following questions
  • Which of your predictions turned out to be true?
  • What surprised you?
  • If your prediction was inaccurate, what in the
    text misled you?
  • What, if anything, is confusing to you?

Annotating Questioning the Text
  • As you reread On Punishment and Teen Killers
    and Juveniles Dont Deserve Life Sentences,
    make 3-4 annotations per page. After your
    annotations, make these marginal notations.
  • 1. In the left-hand margin, label what the author
    is saying as follows
  • The introduction
  • The issue or problem the author is writing about
  • The authors main arguments
  • The authors examples
  • The authors conclusion
  • 2. In the right margin, write your reactions to
    what the author is saying. You can ask questions,
    express surprise, disagree, elaborate, and note
    any moments of confusion.

Analyzing Stylistic Choices
  • The choices writers make when they choose words
    create certain effects for their readers. Think
    about these words from Jenkinss On Punishment
    and Teen Killers. Put a plus () next to the
    words and phrases that have a positive
    connotation and a minus () next to the words and
    phrases that have a negative connotation. If you
    arent certain of the meaning of a word, look it
    up and write a brief definition or synonym next
    to the word in the list.

Summarizing and Responding
  • Use Garingers article with your annotations to
    help you write the summary and response.
  • 1. Write a summary of the article (one
    paragraph). A summary is a shorter version of the
    text which contains all of the most essential
    informationand nothing extra. Identify the
    title, the author, the source, and the date of
    publication in your summary, and write the entire
    summary in your own words do not quote.
  • 2. Write a response to the article (one
    paragraph). A response is your personal reaction
    to the text. For example, what personal
    experiences have you had that cause you to agree
    and/or disagree? Why? Does the author make a
    particularly strong or weak argument? Explain.

Thinking Critically Jigsaw
  • In your group, answer the questions about the
    traditional rhetorical appeals that the authors
    use. Each person is responsible for recording the
    groups answers on their own paper.

Should Your Juvenile Offender be Tried as an
  • Under California law, there are five criteria the
    juvenile court must consider when determining
    whether to certify a child up to the adult
  • 1. the level of the offender's criminal
  • 2. whether he can be rehabilitated within the
    time the juvenile court has to work with the
  • 3. previous delinquent history
  • 4. the success of prior attempts at
  • 5. the seriousness of the crime
  • Read through the description of your juvenile
    offender and consider the criteria then answer
    these questions in 3-5 sentences each.
