Espionage and Sedition Acts: Mock Trial

Bring to life the severity of the Espionage and Sedition Acts through a mock trial. Learners have prior knowledge of WWI and the context of these acts. An anticipatory set gets the class discussing the ethics of wartime dissension, and they create the story behind a court case in which one of their classmates is on trial for sedition. Not much is offered in the way of structuring the trial, however a detailed rubric is available as well as research links (not all work).

Lesson Planet has helped me to find lessons based on proven teaching strategies. I can then tailor them to my class - even though I teach adults who are working on their GED.
