This resource has everything you need to run a mock trial of George Milton for the murder of Lennie Small after your students read John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men. Participating in the mock trial has so many benefits for your classroom: it gives your students choices by allowing them to select their roles for the trial; it requires them to dig deep into the book for textual evidence; it asks them to apply their knowledge of the text in a unique way; and it is highly engaging. This product contains all of the following: a 3-page description of each resource, how to use it, and suggested pacing; mock trial assignment sheet; procedures for the day of the trial; crimes and punishments reference sheet; judge and bailiff script for the day of the trial; role selection sheet for students; and individualized role descriptions for all students. The trial takes from 1-2 weeks for preparation and the day of the trial. The duration will depend on the level of your students and how much of the project you want them to work on at home.
