Holding a Mock Trial

A mock trial replicates the proceedings in a real court room. The trial places a character on trial and tries them in a simulated court of law, to experience the sorts of arguments that are needed to defend or prosecute a defendant.
The judge is the person who presides over the trial. He acts like a referee, making sure that all parties are heard. He helps the jury and then makes a final decision about the guilt or innocence of the defendant.
The lawyers and their legal team are responsible for proving the defendant's guilt or innocence. They use evidence to help support their argument.
The jury is made up of members of the public who listen to all of the arguments and evidence. They then have to make a decision about the guilt or innocence of the defendant.

The courtroom is set up where all members of the court can participate in the proceedings. It is set up in a similar way to the diagram below:

The Burnt Stick- A Personal Response

Using stories to empathise with another person's life can be a powerful way to change the views that we might hold about other people. It puts us into their shoes, and see another person's life through their eyes. The Burnt Stick is a book written with that intention.

"My Country" Poetry Writing

Words can have an impact when we use them in ways that create images and evoke emotions. Poetry is a way of writing that allows someone to communicate these images and emotions in a deeply personal way. They require creativity and thought about a subject, often using a limited amount of words to so. Dorothea Mackellar is an Australian poet, who uses imagery in her poetry to great effect. They portray her love of her country by creating images of colour and ruggedness through a rich use of descriptive words. The most famous of her poems is called "My country", which the students then compared to another poem of hers called "Colours of the Light". After completing the lessons on imagery from these poems, we came up with a definition and looked at the words that can evoke the 5 senses.  To start the process of using imagery in our own writing, we brainstormed ideas for poems. This helps the process of pre-writing. Getting ideas written down assists t
