In this activity, students work in small groups on either a defense team or prosecution team. Students work to build a case that Red Chief is either guilty of assault, or innocent. While students "perform" their case, the "jury" members fill out a sheet to determine a verdict.
*TOTALLY FREE!* One of the best ways for students to edit, is with their peers. Often when editors get a chance to look at another person's writing, they can pick up on quite of few of the mistakes that the original author never would have noticed. This peer editing sheet was created in order to give students a structured and organized way to critically analyze their classroom peers writing efforts.
