Special Education Science Teacher, Janet Molino, continues to teach and actively engage students using her virtual classroom. Ms. Molino's Senior Forensic Science students use 12 handwriting characteristics to solve a crime. Their only clue is a ransom note.
The students have five suspects. Each suspect reproduced the ransom note from the original. Ms. Molino provided the ransom note samples using Google Slides and shared her screen using Google Meet.
The students learned that handwriting is unique to each person, much like a fingerprint. If a crime takes place where there's a piece of handwritten evidence available, it's possible to match it to a suspect through handwriting analysis.
