Humanities 7 – Unit 2 People v. Columbus et al Trial Project


Unit 2 People v. Columbus, et al Trial Project 2015

The goals of the Unit 2 Columbus Trial Project are: 1) to successfully build a case of innocence or guilt for the group's accussed perpetrator in the crime against the Taínos of Hispaniola in 1492; 2) to successfully present this argument in a mock trial in front of the whole class, using historical evidence and strong argumentation skills to win the case; and 3) to work collaboratively in a group according to the BLA schoolwide rubrics on collaboration and engaging with others.
