Product Description
After students read the novel, Mississippi Trial 1955, they can complete these end-of unit mini projects. Documents includes two project choices and rubrics, totally 44 points each. You can have students do one or both!

The first project has students pretending to be the prosecuting attorney of the trial, Gerald Chatham. Students must write a closing argument, an eye witness testimony, and produce a piece of evidence.

The second project has students creating a "what if" situation. They must pretend Hiram was called to testify, and must give a transcript of this hypothetical testimony. Students must also write a letter to Hiram from Grampa as a reaction.

Project was done by an Advanced 7th grade class, but can be used at higher levels. Take and make it your own!

Students were given almost 3 hours of class time to complete, but many had to take work home.
