THE OUTSIDERS: JOHNNY ON TRIAL:

Mock Trial:
This is one of the most fun, yet academically engaging lessons I have done with my kids. With this activity, they are challenged to go deep into the novel and interact with characterization and plot development.This activity also challenges them to engage their writing, group collaboration, and public speaking skills.

The activity is a Mock Trial for Johnny Cade and his role in the murder of Bob Sheldon. It is the students' job to decide if Johnny acted in self defense or if he is guilty of second degree murder. The packet guides the students through the process of the trial with easy-to-follow instructions which means no prep for you! A grading rubric is also included. (I have noted the duration is two days, but this activity can be extended for longer if needed).

The packet includes the following:
1) Instructions/Note for the Teacher
2) General Instructions and Steps for the students
3) Terminology sheet of basic "Courtroom Lingo"
4) Character Role sheets for the following:
*Johnny Cade
*Ponyboy Curtis
*Randy Adderson
