How to Contact Us

The site was principally designed by the Michigan State Communication Technology Laboratory, which has prepared a number of award-winning educational sites on other topics. Teacher educators in conjunction with practicing teachers, in the fields of social studies, history and religion, worked together to develop the curriculum. Factual content was provided by the Death Penalty Information Center, a non-profit organization that conducts research on issues related to capital punishment.

It is our hope that you will give us your feedback after using this Web site. It will be updated periodically to reflect both changes in the death penalty and suggestions for better ways of presenting the information in an engaging manner.

If you are a teacher and are interested in curriculum planning, please complete this form requesting access to lesson plans and explanatory material.
