US History – Columbus Trial Project – Oct 6

On Friday October 8th we will be holding a mock trial to find out who is guilty in the murder and mistreatment of thousands (and perhaps millions) of Taínos. Students will be assigned different clients to defend their innocence before the judge (Mr. V) and jury (the teachers of TBA). The defendants represented are - Christopher Columbus, Columbus' men, King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain, the Taínos, and the "System of Empire."

Dress up like an attorney on Friday for extra credit points!
