        Portraits of Girls in the Criminal Justice System | Women & Girls in the Criminal Justice System | Lesson 1

        This lesson examines factors that can lead to contact with the criminal justice system. It allows students to look at challenges in their past and the role that those challenges play in where they are today. Students are given an opportunity to use creative expression to explore their current situation, whether they are incarcerated or in danger of incarceration. We know something about what puts teens at risk for incarceration and other negative outcomes like teen pregnancy, substance abuse, and dropping out of high school. But each person is unique and risk factors play out differently for different people.
