This assignment comes with a PPT and handout activity for each student. I personally printed each slide of the PowerPoint and posted it around my room so my students could get up and walk around to each station with their handout and notes to analyze the work.
There are a total of 8 stations, 4 civil cases and 4 criminal ones. This students must be able to determine:
>Is this scenario civil or criminal?
>Which step in the court case process does this scenario represent? (i.e. arraignment, arrest & booking, trial, etc)
>Based on the evidence provided, which court would this case be heard in?
> What type of compensation did the plaintiff receive?
This activity is best utilized in small groups, which allows the students to discuss the scenarios and assist one another in determining the best answers, leaving the teacher as a facilitator and only needing to step in if a group just needs a little assistance.
