Question 1 =  What is an objection?

Question 2 = What does “Objection! Lack of Foundation!” mean?

Task #1

Today when you walk in you will find the table arranged into your groups. Go sit with your team. If you are new to the class sit with a group that has an opening.



Task #2

Once everyone is seated we will go through the Mock Trial Google Drive Link  so you can see the resources there for you.

Task #3

After we go through the link I will have  you click on the link below for the online game Objection ! Your Honor !

Task #4

Once you feel pretty decent in your trial and objection skills pair up with someone on your team and go through this simulation -> MAKING YOUR CASE

Task #5

When you have completed all the tasks above work again with your trial to get ready for trial. Team #2 Prosecution and defense will be starting off their trial tomorrow.
