  • A well-designed lesson Lissy but where it breaks down is expecting everyone in class to do nothing but listen while all the witnesses traipse through giving evidence. Young learners cannot be expected to maintain that level of concentration. Better to divide the class into four groups: two prosecuting and two defending with a scaffolded worksheet to help them construct their cases which they then present to class with each allowed to cross-examine the other. That will keep them all involved.
