There are good and bad things with this lab, (sadly, more bad than good). The good: it encompasses a lot of what my students have learned this semester so they're able to put it all together to solve one crime. The bad: The lab does not come with filter paper or enough plastic slides, crayons and toothpicks. That I can live with, though. What I can't get past is the number of errors in the paperwork. I feel like I need to rewrite some of the pages to take out the errors. I find this shocking. Where are the standards? Just because it's science doesn't mean grammar should be sacrificed. In two of the labs, it gives instructions that don't exist in the paperwork. One page says to use one of the suspect's rap sheets. There is no rap sheet. Another page says to use the ink sample from the envelope. There is no envelope, only the pipettes with ink. I'm able to make this work for my students, however, to make it work, it requires a lot of extra prep time that wasn't expected. If I didn't like the concept so much, I would have returned the lab.
