Quiz and Mock Trial Preparation Day

After taking a quiz on either Chapters 12-21 (for To Kill a Mockingbird) or Chapters 6-9 (for Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry), the students made a prospective multiple choice question for their upcoming reading test and then set about researching their roles for their mock trials on Monday.  Using the case scenarios they created yesterday, I filled in some details and produced this lovely document with information about the witnesses, the defendant, as well as the evidence being presented as well.

Mock Trial Case Scenarios

There is a case of sabotage, character assassination, a jewelry heist, and a poisoning and my students contributed the details for the basis of each.  I might have to write some mystery novels based on these!

Homework:

  • Read (as always).
  • Prepare for the mock trial.  The soonest we will start this is Monday.

PowerPoint:
