Students will learn the art of debate and the foundations of creating a case for a mock trial. They will then enter their case for competition at Rutgers University in New Brunswick. If the case is selected they will compete against others in their grade level. They will also become jurors in someone else’s mock trial even if their own case is not selected. They will also visit a court proceeding at the Jersey City courthouse.
Friday classes meet on: 9/28, 10/5, 10/12, 10/19, 10/26, 11/2, 11/16, 11/30
This class is taught by Ms. Warrington, who is new to our school this year. She is currently working with the 4th graders and is very excited to be teaching the Mock Trial class.
