Using a courtroom backdrop for civil, constitutional, and/or criminal cases, this highly interactive and team-oriented class integrates all of the basic academic skills needed to succeed in both college and life. Less formal and structured than organized speech and debate classes, Mock Trial uses drama and an introduction to our court and legal system to create a thoroughly compelling academic elixir that will help your students develop competence, confidence, and collective creativity – the interactive power of teams.
Students will learn: 1) notetaking and organizing skills, 2) listening and reading skills, 3) problem solving skills, 4) effective speaking skills, 5) teamwork and leadership skills, and 6) conflict resolution skills.
