TAKS Court!

Our students have been working hard all year to learn the strategies they need to be successful! As a reward (and a fun way to review our work!), we held a simulation of "TAKS Court" where students role played the members of a courtroom during the case. We rotated, taking turns as the bailiff, laywer, defendant, jury members, and courtroom spectators. Each role was partially scripted and the students did a WONDERFUL job playing their parts, ad-libbing when needed. They took court very seriously! The defendant was called to "prove" their innocence with the work they showed on the problem (or case). Several students were found to be innocent, while a few were guilty! I have included the following clips from some of the cases for you to enjoy!
