Reflection: Lesson Planning Jurors are supposed to be honest, right? - Section 1: Overview


When I used the courtroom simulation in the past, I just plowed through and let the students jump into the website. While it was still beneficial to let them navigate the website and try it out, I am finding that pacing this out over a few days was the best plan I could have. I've spent time building them up so they could truly focus on the evidence being used during the scholastic simulation. I'm excited to see the kids put all these skills together in the next few days.
