"The Most Dangerous Game" Murder Trial of Sangor Rainsford
Upon the conclusion of our study of "The Most Dangerous Game," the students were assigned various roles for a mock murder trial. Students prepared on Friday, January 31st for the trial that would be conducted on Monday, February 3, 2014. As part of the assignment, students were asked to use textual evidence from the story to develop questions, responses, opening and closing statements, news articles, and other forms of media to demonstrate their understanding of the story.
Students were divided into the following categories:
Defense Prosecution Witnesses Jury Media
Each group did a fantastic job working together and developing their "evidence" and written work from the story.
The jury found the defendant to be "not guilty" on 2 counts of murder and 1 count of animal cruelty.
I'd say the defense team did an excellent job defending their client!
