Mock Trial sparks Interest

Mr. Hatley writes: During my observation in Mrs. Bradley's 4th period class on Friday December 4th I observed student excitement, engagement and ownership of their learning as they prepared for the Mock Trial. During my discussion with Mrs. Bradley I asked her to share some information with me. Below is what was shared.

Student engagement has increased during the Mock Trial preparation. Students have been provided opportunities to choose the character they wish to portray in the trial, as well as creativity to build the characters profile. Students have been tasked to work individually and collaboratively. The objective has been for students to actively analyze the roles, structure, and function of the Judicial Branch.
