Forensic Science and Criminal Investigation

TPS Publishing Inc. has created two courses; Forensic Science and Criminal Investigation. These courses have been constructed with the intent to enhance the learning and teaching within schools. Our text is structured to be user friendly for all teachers, irrespective of their background, and is simpler for students to follow than many alternative texts.

We have endeavored to keep our offering interesting to students, and teachers alike, by including real life cases (experienced by our forensic chemist author!) as well as a wide variety of activities and assignments, some of which include; role play, essay writing, use of the arts, as well as the more traditional practice tests.

Throughout the course vocabulary is a central focus. ELPS’ are directly written to, as well as including numerous other language learning techniques. This will assist all students, but in particular will help students who struggle with English language.

The course has been written by educators who care passionately about providing the opportunity to all students for post-secondary education, enabling quality applicants for all careers. We have developed innovative programs, so that students will be engaged and achieve high success in their course work and examinations.

As with all TPS materials, the cost is low, and quality high.

Materials are available in color, print or black and white, as digital only or a mixture of formats.

TPS provide excellent professional development for all teachers, students and parents and run workshops to assist implementation and maintenance of the program.

The Forensic Science, and the Criminal Investigation programs are both comprised of:

Law Enforcement and Principles of Law, Public Safety, Corrections, and Security

TPS Publishing Inc. has created a STEAM activity book for high school students.

It is inquiry based and will develop student critical thinking skills. For the majority of TEKs there is an activity involving individual, paired and group methods.

The text is structured to be user friendly for all teachers, irrespective of their background, and is simpler for students than many alternative texts. Throughout the course, vocabulary is a key focus, and a word wall with terms and definitions is built and those terms are applied. This will assist all students, but in particular will help students who struggle with English language.

The activities involve role play, essay writing, creation of information posters, and practice tests.

The course has been written by educators who care passionately about providing the opportunity to all students for post-secondary education enabling quality applicants for all careers.

The program has provided interesting scenarios for student study, and requires a high level of research, documentation and use of mathematics, English language, science, technology and arts. It is an innovative program, covering all TEKS and students will achieve high success in their course work and examinations.
