Mock Trials and Critical Thinking.
Karraker, Meg Wilkes
College Teaching, v41 n4 p134-37 Fall 1993
One college teacher's use of mock trials in sociology instruction is described. Students are assigned roles as petitioner, respondent, attorneys, judge, courtroom staff, witnesses, reporters, and jurors. Pretrial investigations provide experience in information-gathering and critical thinking. Posttrial debriefing reveals others' thinking processes to students. (MSE)
