This lesson helps students understand the different types of "cop shows" that appear on television. Students will create their own pilots for television cop shows, based on information provided in class, and will learn about the differences between the constructed reality of these programs and law enforcement in real life through class discussion with a police officer.
This lesson and all associated documents (handouts, overheads, backgrounders) are available in an easy-print, pdf kit version.
