Kids will love exploring the justice system with the fun characters and stories found in More Jury Trials in the Classroom, the long-awaited companion book to the best-selling Jury Trials in the Classroom. Four new trial simulations are introduced, including a modern-day version of the tortoise and the hare story and a reenactment of a trial featuring Susan B. Anthony. The simulations in this book let students delve into criminal and civil law with motivating cases that mirror situations in history, folklore, and literature. In the roles of attorneys, members of the jury, defendants, witnesses, and courtroom personnel, students prepare and conduct cases. They also will learn to use statements of fact and witness affidavits to determine guilt or innocence.
