Civil Citizens Block: Intro to Mock Trial and Jr. Model United Nations Grades: 5-7 Block: 8:30-11:45 Instructor- Summer Cervantez Lab Fee: $25 Students enrolled in this block will have the opportunity to learn more about the United States’ justice system and global diplomacy by taking two different classes a day. Turn on those brains and get ready to exercise those critical thinking and public speaking skills in a fun, challenging, and active environment! Come join the HMS Mock Trial Coach, with special appearances by current and former HMS Mock Trial Team Members. Introduction to Mock Trial: Are you always asking the important questions? Do you love to argue? Ever imagine what it was like to be a lawyer in a courtroom? Welcome to Mock Trial! Students will read and analyze legal cases, act out cases, and take part in trials as lawyers and witnesses in fictitious criminal cases. Students will acquire a better understanding of our judicial system and learn about the fundamentals of persuasion, practice their reasoning skills, and learn to think on their feet. Jr. Model United Nations: Want to learn more about different countries? Want to understand what important issues face the global community? What will we students do in Junior Model United Nations? Students will be assigned a country, actively research, debate, problem-solve, and write proposals on world issues, while simulating the committees of the United Nations. Students will also participate in the campaigning and election process.
