Project Description

Students were to express why they chose to go into the Criminal Justice program. They were to connect their reasons to the 4 strands of student voice (content, culture, metacognition, and social/emotional).

Content: The top 3 things I learned from this showcase were:

The most interesting thing I’ve learned here was the felony and normal traffic stops. Basically it teaches you how to stay safe when confronting a felon on the road.

I hope to use the skills I learned here if it’s the physical and or the mental aspect of this class and take it into multiple careers such as Police, Swat, FBI, Military but the main career I want to pursue is a career in MMA.

Culture: This project relates or connects to my family, background, peers, community or my own personal interests in these ways:

My family, especially my sister encourage me to go to Butler Tech. They told me it was going to be different scheduling and they told me to be prepared for whatever comes ahead.

The way we learned at Butler Tech increased my respect for police officers. The experience taught me in class, showed me how the people who protect us get themselves dirty so the world can stay clean. Because of our instructor, Mr. Fitzgerald’s and his experience as a police officer in the field, I was able to get firsthand knowledge of what the career is really like.

Metacognition: In reflection, one thing that I would have done differently during my journey with this showcase is:

I didn’t realize before starting this program the emotional aspect of being a police officer. Hearing the experiences of our instructor opened my eyes to other parts of the criminal justice world that I didn’t think of before.

Social/Emotional: One thing I am most proud of by completing this showcase is:

I learned about how I interact with others with a clear head and to stay levelheaded and always be aware of my surroundings.

I have learned how to cope with frustration because if you don’t it could cost you your life and or your partners life.
