Mock Trial TImeline

Dear Readers,

This post is for Challenge B tutors who, like me, are working on the monumental task of preparing our students for Mock Trial in May. During the research phase of the project we are creating a timeline.  Last year I made mine on freezer paper and added to it when we discovered new details.  Here is what it looks like all together:Image

Here are details:

We noted the events that took place long before the case:

It isn’t necessary to do such a big production, though. Regular 8.5 x 11 paper in landscape orientation will do just as well. And some people prefer their timeline as a list on lined paper, going down rather than across.

Hope that helps.

    Thank you so much! You are very helpful to this newbie B tutor :)

    • It is my pleasure! I am passing along what I have learned. Mock trial is one of the biggest things your kids will ever do (and it teaches the director a thing or two, too.) Eat it like an elephant–one bite at a time.
