Students will evaluate information and work with witnesses one on one so they can learn their story for court as well as develop questions for Prosecution and Defense for that witness.
Task #1- Today as you enter the room you will notice that there are six work stations set up with a laptop at each station. In the center of each station you will notice there is a witness name. The people who are playing witnesses need to set where their name is. The rest of you can sit where you would like.
Task #2 – On your laptops you will create a word document with two collumns. Each collumn will be 21 spaces. The title for the collumn on the left is “Prosecution Questions”. The title for the collumn on the right is “Defense Questions”. Today you will be working as a team to help the witnesses learn their roles as well as help the prosecution and defense teams prepare questions for court.
Students will continue to evaluate and synthesize information about the YaKuZa from previous student work.
Task #1 – We began this assignment yesterday, but as we found out it was going to take much longer than a day to finish it. Today we will be using class time to finish this assignment. While you work here are a few tips:
Be ready to defend why you kept certain information and why you put it in the order you did.
Add additional graphs and photographs to increase effectiveness of the presentation.
Remember we are trying to reduce unneccessary information and also put it into an effective order.
Pretend you are giving this information to a law enforcement agency like the DEA, FBI, or CIA. They want to know the following information:
-Who are the YaKuZa?
-How did their organization begin?
-Who is in charge?
-How are they structured?
-What symbols do they use?
-What are they involved in?
-What is the weakest point? Where should we attack them?
