Socials 10-3: Riel Mock Trial
Today we participated in a mock trial for Louis Riel using authentic trial transcripts. You were the beta test group for this activity and I was very pleased with your ability to roll with the process knowing that time was tight and there wasn't an opportunity to pre-read your scripts. Thanks especially to those who offered to take the bigger parts (especially Jasper and Jordan who, as lead counsel, read A LOT); but thanks also to the rest of you because you all kept a positive attitude (and some of you read more than you wanted to but did it anyway). I thought I needed to cut the scripts down even more, and today conformed my thoughts. Next class we'll look at the CPR and the National Policy, and after that is test day.
