This is a three part unit project on To Kill a Mockingbird that includes an essay, a mock trial and a reflection paper. Instead of doing the basic reenactment of the trial in the book I have asked students to think about people in today's age that are being prosecuted and ridiculed for rumors and things that may or may not have been true. Students will have to choose a person today to have a mock trial over a case that involves both positive and negative views of the person where the rest of the class will vote.
Included: 1 paper about rumors and the social injustice of a bad rumor (directions and a rubric)
directions of the mock trial including a rubric
1 reflection paper to compare and contrast the trial that was done in class to that of the trial in To Kill a Mockingbird.
