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