        Police Reform

        Students explore why tensions often exist between communities of color and the police, what actions may prompt a federal investigation of a police department, and how tensions about policing might be addressed, in this interactive lesson featuring videos from FRONTLINE: Policing the Police. Using Newark, NJ, as an example, students gather evidence of discriminatory policing practices, examine the perspectives of police and community, and learn about changes that have been proposed or implemented to try to improve the situation. They then outline and draft a final explanatory essay that presents their ideas.
