Trial of Anne Hutchinson
Lawyers:

  1. First and foremost, decide together what main theme/thesis you are going to direct all of your questions to. Make your case strong – WHY is Anne Hutchinson guilty? WHY is she innocent?

  • Remember what she is on trial for!!




  1. Your team MUST have at least 10 questions per witness.

  • 8 witnesses x 10 questions = 80 questions at least




  1. Your team will examine all witnesses!




  1. Divide up the witnesses – each lawyer MUST question a few witnesses. Easiest way: Become an expert on those witnesses – research them and find holes in their stories!




  1. Written Work: Turn in a copy of your questions for the witnesses before the trial

  • Lead attorneys must also have opening and closing statements.




  1. ABSENT CLAUSE: the show will go on. Let the others on your team know your line of questioning in case they have to fill in for you (email them or me!) You will then fall under the clause at the end of the paper. READ IT!!




  1. I will grade you on the following: how well you stay on task in the LRC, how well you listen during the trial, your performance as an attorney, written questions and opening and closing statements (DUE TRIAL DAY).

Witnesses and Judge:

  1. You MUST become knowledgeable of your character! You may not have notes while on the stand. You should know your person inside and out!




  1. Lawyers and journalists may interview you before the trial.




  1. Written Work: You are to write a 1-2 page summary of who you are and your relationship to Anne (DUE Trial Day).




  1. ABSENT CLAUSE: Read the clause at the end.




  1. I will grade you on the following: how well you stay on task in the LRC, how well you listen at the trial, your performance as your character, and the paper you will write.

Journalists:



  1. Know that your job begins in the LRC – not at the trial.




  1. Written Work: As a journalist, you will write a newspaper article on the trial of Anne Hutchinson. Follow the journalism guidelines of WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, and WHY? Do not write a report – this is a newspaper article.




  1. The article must include:

    • Title

    • Your name

    • Quotes by attorneys, witnesses, and judge (can get before trial)

    • Who, what, when, where, why of the trial – include background of a minimum of 7 witnesses in the trial

    • Outcome – was she declared guilty or innocent? Sentence?

    • Effect of this trial on society




  1. Length: 1.5 typed – Due Day after Trial ends




  1. You will be graded on how well you stay on task (in LRC), your article, and on your listening skills and note-taking during the trial.

Jury:


  1. Written Work: Write a 2 page paper including the background of the trial, who Anne Hutchinson is, what the defense attorneys will have to do to prove her innocence and what the prosecutors will have to do to prove her guilt. (Due Trial Day).




  1. Take notes during trial.




  1. You will decide the fate of Anne after the closing statements. If the verdict is guilty, you must take another vote on the punishment – Death? Banishment? Jail?




  1. You will be graded on how well you stay on task (in LRC), your notes during trial, your paper, and listening skills during the trial.

Absent Clause for All: If you are absent on the trial date, you put others at a great disadvantage not to mention what you will miss yourself. To ensure that you do understand Anne Hutchinson and the effects of the trial, you will write a 3 page paper on just that: Anne Hutchinson and the effects of the trial.
