It has been quite some time since I published my first guidebook on teaching Law Enforcement English, so it is high time we refreshed what it was about. This book deals with a couple of topics related to Law Enforcement and it offers the following:
The Guide to Teaching Law Enforcement English serves the function of providing tips and exercises for classes of Law Enforcement English and also for General English classes.
Mainly, it is designed to help Law Enforcement teachers (and students) build their kits (tools for learning) and focus on topics, such as crime scene investigation, terrorism, serial killers or CSI. Besides its ‘Appendix’, which is full of useful links, you can find ‘Case Studies’ that might be used in your class. The purpose of these case studies is to make classes interactive and encourage practical thinking in students . It is also indispensable to mention that in-class experience might vary from the experience and know-hows of your students, as the exercises are meant to be used in classrooms. In addition, The Guide to Teaching Law Enforcement English contains a handful of resources and sample exercises that may be adjustable to the needs of your classes.
About the book: The Guide to Teaching Law Enforcement English has 12 chapters, covering the following topics:
Crime Scene vs Scene of the Crime
Crime Scene Investigation
Drug / Alcohol Smuggling
These aspects of law enforcement are viewed from a teaching perspective, that is, this guide provides ideas how to incorporate these issues in your classes. Besides the topics above, there is a chapter on Methodology, which analyses some of the methodologies and makes comment on them. Finally, it has case studies that you can also teach in their entireties and one chapter Appendix, full of links.
