Steps in a Jury Trial

Agenda:

Warm Up 

Since I will be with Mr. Nelson and other leadership teachers up in the top of “A” building today there will not be a warm up.

Task #1 (30 minutes)

First thing today is to meet in your trials teams by case using the diagram below. Then click HERE to gain access to the google folder that holds the jury notes from yesterday’s practice or click the link below. Look at how your jury rated your performance by aspect and what they had to say. Then determine on how you will address these issues for the read trial tomorrow.

Task #2 – (60 minutes)

After you review the feedback scores your jury gave you, you will have the rest of the period to prep for tomorrow’s real trial. Remember that real trials are the same weight as exams in this class.  If you have anything you need to ask or clarify e-mail me at MrTylersLessons@gmail.com.
