This is a lesson plan for a mock trial over the Supreme Court Case: Cherokee Nation vs. Georgia. It provides instructions for the teacher and students. It displays how to divide up students into their character roles along with what to do as a team. It contains character roles for each student along with their objective and a primary source reading to support their argument in the trial. At the end of the lesson it contains a writing prompt for students to do as a concluding formative assessment. My students enjoyed arguing their case before knowing what really happened in the case to see if they came to the same conclusion as in the past!
