- Hear from content experts

Intro to Middle School Mock Trial
November 14, 2019
This professional development introduces the Middle School Mock Trial program to teachers/advisors and prepares them to apply it to their classroom or community. Attendees will learn mock trial basics and strategies for implementing a literature-based legal case, such as methods for teaching a book alongside a case file. As with all OCLRE professional development meetings, teachers/advisors will walk away with resources and advice to apply in the classroom.
