Revel Criminal Justice

Experience Revel

Designed for how you want to teach — and how your students want to learn

Revel is an interactive learning environment that engages students and helps them prepare for your class. Reimagining their content, our authors integrate media and assessment throughout the narrative so students can read, explore, and practice, all at the same time. Thanks to this dynamic reading experience, students come to class prepared to discuss, apply, and learn about criminal justice — from you and from each other.

Instead of simply reading about criminal justice, students are empowered to think critically about key topics. For example, Point/Counterpoint videos explore different views on controversial issues such as search and seizure, profiling, prisoner rights, and the Patriot Act. Through its engaging learning experience, Revel helps students better understand course material while preparing them to meaningfully participate in class.
