Product Description
No unit on the 1920s is complete without a thorough examination of the "Scopes Monkey Trial." It provides excellent insight into the traditionalism vs. modernism debate that was raging at the time and it is just plain fun and interesting to talk about. This mock trial has become a favorite student activity and allows them to assume the roles of the very colorful characters of the trial including William Jennings Bryan, Clarence Darrow, and H.L. Mencken. It is highly differentiated and includes roles for courtroom sketch artists, a judge, a small town minister, and many others. This 23 page guide includes a teaching guide, descriptions of all the roles, procedure guidelines, preview and debrief activities, and examples of past student work.
