Learning About the Death Penalty

Rating: 5 stars
Used in Course: Used in course
Submitted by: Jennifer Lerner (Administrator), Sep 24, 2006
Comment: I have used this site in both criminology and introductory sociology courses. Students generally respond quite well to it. It provides a clear but not overwhelming overview of a range of basic arguments against the death penalty and includes questions for further thought and links for further information. Students regularly come away from reviewing this site remembering its key points and having changed views about the issue. I usually only ask students to read the main site, but the wealth of information lends itself to a larger assignment involving deeper exploration as well.
