Restorative Justice / Death Penalty
Students will learn about incarceration, the death penalty, and restorative justice. They will learn about the difference between punitive prison time and restorative justice and be challenged to view those in prison through the lens of the dignity of the human person. Solutions to crime and punishment must take into account the dignity of every person. In this lesson, we will also learn about the changes in the Catholic Catechism, which states that capital punishment is inadmissible.
