Arrest- A Legal System Simulation

What would your class do if a police officer arrested a student in class? This is exactly the anticipatory set that gets students engaged in a unit on the legal system. The plan is to get the officer to simulate an arrest, and then guest speak to start the unit. After 2-3 weeks of case-study instruction, a mock-trial is held for the original "culprit," with roles played by local attorneys, and a student-jury rendering a decision. Consider having students play all the roles.

Lesson Planet has made giving my English lessons so much easier. I can go on Lesson Planet and prepare lessons for my Japanese students with ease and save my lessons for future use. I am new to Lesson Planet, but have found it to be very useful.
