What am I learning this week?
-This week is somewhat shortened due to the changing of the chairs ceremony at the end of the week. However, seeing as the EOC will be approaching fast, we have a few test prep items to complete.
-This week we will begin prepping for and discussing the mock trial we will adjudicate after the EOC. Students will use class time to review the Hazing/Manslaughter case, defining roles within the exercise, and drafting opening statements and testimony.
-We will also begin watching two episodes from Making of a Murderer to discuss legal procedure in criminal cases.
-Before Friday we will also be writing, and peer grading, the constructed response from the Milestones study guide.
How am I learning this?
-As stated, we will begin work on the Hazing/Manslaughter case this week. Lead counsel for both sides will receive all these files to review with the team, define roles, and begin prepping witnesses.
-Using Cornell-style notes, students will identify the correct procedure in criminal cases as we look at episode one and ten of Making of a Murderer
-Students will use the synthesis sources to complete the constructive response. Students will also receive the seven-point rubric and a student exemplar to complete peer grading on this task.
