Product Description
These are the Hollywood Squares Game applied to the law as shown in the movies INHERIT THE WIND and THE HOUSE OF SAND & FOG.

The first is with Spencer Tracy (as Clarence Darrow) made in 1960. This was the trial, called the "Scopes Monkey Trial" over whether teacher John Scopes could teach only Darwinism or whether he had to teach the Bible as a theory on a parity with Darwinism. This remains an issue for today as both the Creationists and Intelligent Design adherents are tackling the same issue using different names in public school teaching policy.

The second film, is HOUSE OF SAND AND FOG. This film is about the American legal system and a number of issues under that system, such as: an immigrant's ability to grasp the full implications of living under a Constitutionally protected system of laws; vigilantism, which has grown in America's War on Terror, dispossession as both a legal process and a metaphor, incompetency and duress in American law (there is a white policeman who increasingly steps outside of the law in the film). The characters who are the immigrants are from the Middle East which makes this very timely.

My use of the game is a modification of it. It is visually cued so that when a student picks a picture from the panel of squares, that takes the student to a question which fits with that visual. The questions and answers are not rote memorization types. They are thoughtful and analytical. My way of using this device is to ask students the questions with the game in open class to score their class participation and thinking on their feet type verbal skills. This becomes part of their overall grade.

Look at the pictures with this listing and then download them in your free preview. You must screen the movie in class prior to using the Game.

I used these movies in my classes and they were very effective at communicating my learning points. Very spirited discussions followed.
