Task I: Where Did that Law Come From!?
We previously looked at the various TYPES of law. Today, we shift our focus to the SOURCE of the laws. Please download the reading “Sources of Law” and discuss the content with your shoulder partner, taking down some key notes in your writing journal. Be prepared to share your findings with the class!
Task II: One Accident, Two Trials.
In this task, you will see an example of how ONE incident can actually end up with TWO trials. Follow the diagram through to the end and note all of the similarities and differences between the two scenarios. At the end, there is a Venn Diagram for you to complete in the NOTES section of your writing journals. Good luck!
Extension: Court Quest!
In Court Quest, people from around the country need your help to navigate our court system. Listen carefully to each case, so you can guide them to the right place! Hopefully, this game will help you grasp the "concept" of the court system in our country.
