Tired of dead eyes from your students around the holidays?
Keep your students actively engaged, writing, and PRODUCTIVELY TALKING with real-life legal cases!
This thinkLaw Task Card Activity uses FIVE real-life legal cases:
-A woman sues Johnson and Johnson after her husband's home-made sheep costume catches fire.
-A man sues Warner Brothers for stealing his ideas for a haunted movie. The studio says the movie is based on a true story so they don't need his permission. He says there's no such thing as ghosts.
-A woman sues the owners of a corn maze after their experience proves a little too frightening.
-A man sues a real-estate company and former owners after he discovers his new house is haunted!
- A costume company sues a store over ripping off their banana costume
Students will work in small groups to analyze the cases, examine evidence, and ask questions. Each group member will be assigned a job and explicitly explained their task. Students will conclude by selecting a case and writing a persuasive paragraph using the thinkLaw DRAAW+C framework as a guide!
This download includes:
-5 case files with a total of 60 student task cards
-Student Writing sheets
AND all resources are available as Microsoft or Google Documents!
Harness student excitement into powerful discussion and writing!
