This past Friday and Monday our Challenge B (equivalent to eighth graders) had their mock trials. This is when they've studied up on cases & they go against another Classical Conversations Challenge B group in front of a judge & jury to try the case. First, one group prosecutes while the other defends & a verdict is made. Then, the groups try the same case but, switch their roles. Challenge B Tampa won all 4 times!!! I'm so proud!
I love the experience the kids get with this. On Friday they were at Stetson Law for their "trial" & they had an actual judge acting as the judge for their case!
(Here's a little blurb about the mock trial notebook & proceedings.)
