What is your team's main defense or "story"? Think back to the mock mock trial run through we did last Thursday: Tinker v. DesMoines School District. The Prosecution's story was all about how the School District violated the 1st Amendment and Mary Beth Tinker had a right to express her views about the Vietnam War. Meanwhile, the Defense argued that not all speech is protected and a school needs to protect ALL of its students and ensure a non-disruptive, safe, environment.
JUDGES-- write out the story for BOTH sides that you would anticipate hearing.
ASHLEY'S NOTE TO HERSELF: Show witnesses and lawyers the template for direct exam questions! Also put witness testimonies/bios into google doc folder! Meet with Judges to go over the summary of case paper expectations.
1. Lawyers and Witnesses, meet as one big group to complete the "Final Report" Discussion Guide. Make a copy of it, elect one notetaker and one "taskmaster", who will read instructions on the doc and keep the group on track. Judges, meet with each other to do this.
2. Lawyers, once you finish the Final Report discussion, join Ashley for the Workshop on writing a theory of the case. I'll go over what to ensure you are thinking about and communicating to each other as you prepare your case.
3. Work time (See below for specific role tasks)
