Mock Trial Project can be used for any major character for any major text.
Decide who the students will put on trial and what crime has been committed. Half the class plays the role of the prosecution and half the class is the defense. Roles cover opening statement, evidence, witnesses, and closing statement.
This product includes:
A Power Point explaining the assignment and the different roles
A reflection for students to complete after the mock trial
A timeline to follow for the courtroom debate
Two "judge" rubrics (for the teacher to complete; choose the one that best fits your needs)
One "jury" rubric
A progress monitoring checklist to help you keep track of students while they're working on their scripts
