Description

Student excitement around holidays can leave teachers headed into break feeling a little worn down!

Keep your students actively engaged, writing, and PRODUCTIVELY TALKING with real-life legal cases!

This thinkLaw Task Card Activity uses FIVE real-life legal cases:

-A pie company sues a rival pie company that sent a SPY into their factory

-A prisoner sues the prison when he finds out that there is turkey in the turkey stuffing

- A woman sues her grocery store employer for violating her freedom of religion when they require her to work the Wednesday night before Thanksgiving

- A woman sues QVS for a faulty turkey pan

- Department stores find themselves as defendants when their Black Friday ads say that the "original price" of items are MUCH higher than product prices have ever been listed

Students will work in small groups to analyze the cases, examine evidence, and ask questions. Each group member will be assigned a job and explicitly explained their task. Students will conclude by selecting a case and writing a persuasive paragraph using the thinkLaw DRAAW+C framework as a guide!

This download includes:

-5 case files with a total of 60 student task cards

-Teacher's Guide

-PowerPoint Presentation

-Student Writing sheets

AND all resources are available as Microsoft or Google Documents!

Harness student excitement into powerful discussion and writing!
