Product Description

Up for grabs here is a Mock Trial assignment I do with my 9th grade English students. After we finish reading Oedipus Rex, I have them examine some of the narrative oddities that appear throughout the text. There are a number of points throughout the story where the eye witness testimony regarding the central murder is inconsistent. I use this mock trial to have them practice pulling quotes out of the text, a skill that will be invaluable later on in the year. The mock trial is usually a lot of fun, with students get dressed up and rehearsing their parts. Included are a suggested timeline and the rubrics that I use for assessment.
