Task #1:

Understanding precedent. Today’s warm up was focused on helping you understand what precedent is and how to use it in trial. Let’s keep going with looking at precedent to make sure we understand this concept. We are going to do a brief reading activity. Download, save, and share,  the Cornell Notes template below to Title this document “Period # – Your Name – Cornell Notes – Roe v Wade (precedent). Next open the reading document below on Roe v Wade. Read through this article and break it down into Cornell Note format. I will be giving you 20 minutes to go through this article. At the end of this we will discuss the article and your breakdowns.

Reading-> Precedent Example – Roe v Wade

Task #2:

Now! As a team you need to hunt or precedent to use in your own trials. Let me know when you have found a case you might be able to use to help win your side of your case and I will let you know if you should include it or not. Each member of your team must contribute one statute or case example. Remember I will know who contributes because Google lets me see what each person has done.
