Why Juveniles Commit Crimes

Students examine the reasons why juveniles commit crimes. As a class, they watch movies showing juveniles committing crims and discuss the impact on societies. They take a field trip to adult and juvenile courts and compare their procedures and rulings. To end the lesson, they write an essay on their reactions and feelings toward juvenile delinquency.
