Law 120: Students are beginning their mock cases today. We have 2-3 cases that we will conduct in class. Lawyers were given their cases and witness statements today. These students will take the next few days to understand and present their cases. Court begins on Monday November 30th, 2015. Tomorrow Layers will interview their witnesses to better understand and prepare for the case. Other members serve on the jury- These students will listen and respond to decide the verdict. On prep days these students will work on a 3-4 page paper regarding a controversial case. Here is the outline for your research paper: ·        Research and choose a controversial case- Controversial meaning that the case has caused some sort of split in regards to the outcome of it. It could be a hung jury case, or a media discussion of some sort. Most of these cases are based on controversial topics, for example assisted suicide. ·        Summaries the case (actus reas) ·        Express the (mens rea)- what is going on in the head of the accused. ·        Explain all evidence- how was the evidence used in court. ·        Give the defense’s approach to the case ·        Explain the outcome ·        Do you agree with the outcome? Why or why not? ·        Any other thoughts about the case.(back up your opinions) ·        4 PAGES (each time you are a witness for a case, you do one less page) ·        12 font ·        Show your research. Reading tutor: Naomi and Michelle- teaching music- students will learn to write a song. Social studies- We have been learning about the benchmarks of history- yesterday we started on ethical concepts of history- meaning history should mean something to us. It teaches us how the sacrifices of many have provided for us. The students will access a memorial today (worksheet) they will choose a memorial and answer the questions to see what they can learn from it. (10-15 minutes) Secondly the students will work in pairs to design a new memorial (on paper) to represent a piece of Canadian history. This can be from a local, national or worldwide event.   Explain what the memorial is why you designed what you designed- (maybe include some representations of primary source evidence) Why the event is important (Historically significant) for us What lessons can we learn from this event?  The memorial will be due end of class Friday.
