Ole Miss course pairs crime lab with classroom
More than a dozen north Mississippi middle school science teachers recently spent two weeks studying blood spatter and footprint evidence, but they weren’t helping search for a killer. Rather, they were looking for new ways to engage their students in the classroom.
The teachers attended a workshop at the University of Mississippi on using crime scene investigation strategies. Called Creative Sciences through Inquiry, aka CSI Mississippi, the program provides professional development for in-service teachers each year. This is the first time it has been hosted in north Mississippi.
