Product Description
Are you looking for a highly engaging strategy to assist students in a deeper understanding of literary or historical text? This strategy is perfect for upper grade students! After teaching your students a short explanation of the trial process, put your students in teams of five and have them put a character or historical figure on "trial" for a fictional crime or offense. Have students prepare their case, complete with a prosecuting attorney, a defense attorney and witnesses. With the teacher as the judge and their classmates as the jury, allow your class to vote on the most convincing argument at the end of each trial! This packet comes with all the resources you'll need to perform these character trials. This packet includes: step-by-step directions, a model script of a court case where Cinderella's mother was put on trial for her unfair and unkind treatment of Cinderella, a blank script for your students to create their court cases, an evaluation sheet for students to complete as they view their classmates' trials, and a self-evaluation sheet for students to complete to reflect on their own learning. You'll love this activity and your students will, too! It is perfect for junior high English language arts classrooms!
