Read a court case to determine which student is guilty of being insensitive.
Students will read a court case to the class, and the class will have to reach a verdict from the evidence that is presented -- Which student is insensitive? This is a fun way to have students find evidence to support their answer.
I have included a script, name tags for students, a worksheet for students to reach a verdict, and a second version of the script. The second version of the script will need to be completed before the lesson. It may be less confusing to read the script with students' real names. If you choose to use this script, you will need to select your students for the roles ahead of time, create a key of who is who, and you will need to look at the original version to fill in the blanks. It is more time consuming but could be more beneficial.
My students love this activity! They are engaged in the lesson and have fun reaching a verdict.
