This fact sheet is full of current data and information that would be valuable to any teacher who is covering the death penalty. The handout includes charts and graphs of statistics, key information about the cost of the death penalty, lists of states, and much much more. Although there is not a lesson plan included, the fact sheet could be used in a variety of ways to support student learning. For example, a worksheet could be created that asks questions about the information provided and it could be provided to students to be used as supporting evidence in a debate on the death penalty.

Let me begin by saying great job girls! I really enjoyed our discussion yesterday on Elluminate and felt it was full of insight and thought provoking questions. Moreover, when I perused your learning objects, I came across this one, which I found very helpful to my own learning. As Garland noted in his book, race is a factor that must be studied in order to understand why the death penalty has not been abolished as a form of punishment in the United States. This specific resource provided me with ample statistics on why the issue of race cannot be ignored when deliberating over the constitutionality of capital punishment. While the empirical data may be cumbersome and time consuming for students to read through, it proved invaluable to me as I could easily see myself returning to this learning object to collect information to make my own Prezi to share with my students.
