to a newspaper article. The police report will contain information that answers the following questions: who, what,
when, where, why, how. This is based upon what the officers see, hear, smell, and experience at the scene.
Step 2 Distribute the Writing a Police Report Narrative handout. Student/s read the description of a police
narrative, and the teacher answers questions as needed.
Step 3 Student/s use a computer with internet access to watch (at least) one of the following videos:
Car accident http://www.youtube.com/watchv=nfK3mBMkZWU
Bank robbery http://www.youtube.com/watchv=l7iR5oA53vU&feature=related
Criminal mischief http://www.youtube.com/watchv=EgLAJCBZ7Kw&feature=channel
Step 4 Using a word processing program (such as Microsoft Word), student/s write a police report narrative
based upon the video of their choice. The narrative should meet the criteria set forth in the assignment. The
narrative must present facts (details about what was observed or experienced) objectively, display correct spelling
and capitalization, and be organized and easy to understand.
Step 5 After student/s write the police report narrative, they should proofread and use the spelling and grammar
tool to be sure that the narrative uses correct spelling, punctuation, and grammar. Lastly, the student/s should
compare the narrative to the evaluation checklist to be sure it meets all of the criteria. Revise as needed.
Completed narrative describing one of the crime videos; completed rubric.
This assignment can be used to document mastery of benchmarks for Stackable Certificates. Collect and save in
the student’s portfolio.
Adaptations for Beginning Students
Beginning students may start by creating a list of facts about the crime (rather than a paragraph), and then work
with a teacher or partner to arrange these facts into a narrative form.
Adaptations for Advanced Students
Advanced students will create witness statements in addition to the narrative.
