Product Description
Small groups of students are paired against each other to argue for or against John Brown in this famous 1859 trial. Students read several primary sources from the Mauzy Letters and from John Brown. Students fill out a legal brief of their arguments and the other sides argument as the mini-trial occurs and then write their personal opinion about whether John Brown is guilty. This could be completed in a class period or longer depending how much research you want students to do.
