In-School Mock Trial Mini Units
Discovering Justice’s Mock Trial Mini Units bring teaching civic knowledge, skills, and dispositions to life in the elementary classroom (in person or online) through a week long interactive unit during which student lawyers work to build their case.
This summer, Discovering Justice worked with a group of teachers to create units that are aligned to specific grade level standards, structured as an engaging mock trial over the course of 7-10 lessons and accessible to be taught fully virtually, in person or hybrid!

U sable both in-person and virtually, these mini units engage students in a mock trial based on grade level content and literacy standards as well as key K-12 practice standards. Students will practice perspective taking, analyzing evidence, using evidence to build an argument, discussing themes of justice, and making connections to historical and current events along with their broader community/world.
