The Outsiders – a Moot Court Extension

In this fun new Moot Court from Civics Learning Project, the story of The Outsiders is extended into an appellate hearing based on a fictional court case that took place around a stabbing incident in the book. This is a fun way to extend learning for students reading The Outsiders, as well as a way to introduce issues around appellate hearings, constitutional arguments, and an examination of due process and the Sixth Amendment. The full packet, which includes guides, handouts, and extension information is here to be downloaded either in .pdf or .docx version.
