2/24/2020 – 3/1/2020 Criminal Law Agenda

2/27/2020-3/1/2020

Students will be in groups (up to four) and will work together to plan out and produce a short infomercial attempting to sell their branch of government like a product.

Students will work in their groups to create their infomercial. Students will be scored by me. Student will also score themselves and their other group members to create an average score to be added to their score from the teacher.

Suggestion for editing: Filmora Go

KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) – make sure it is easy to understand and not cluttered with excess movement and gestures; audiences need all the clues they can get to understand what you’re doing

Be fantastic – both in the “good performance” aspect and the “not reality” aspect; this does not have to follow regular rules and should be larger than life at all times

Step 1: Thursday 2/27/2020

Plan!

Write down what you want to do. Make a storyboard or outline. MUST be turned in with the project.

Step 2: Friday 2/28/2020

Film! Go film the video! Who is recording? Who is acting?

Step 3: Monday 1/2/2020

Edit the video! An easy app that my students have used time and time again (and can be used on a computer as well) is Filmora Go! If you want to use something else, that is fine.

Some infomercials for inspiration:

2/4/20

Socratic Seminar

The Justice Department points to an allegation that Mr. Trump may have violated a law that prohibits the solicitation of an illegal foreign campaign contribution, which doesn’t necessarily mean money, it can also mean a “thing of value.”

The question is not what you believe politically.  I do not want to hear any conversation about your “politics.”  We only want to discuss the matter at hand.  Your opinion for or against ouster does not mean anything about your political opinion.  If we were the Senate, we would want our decision to be objective and not dependent on our political alliances.

So here it is:

Do you think American presidents should ask foreign powers to investigate political rivals?  Why or why not?

Do you think that President Trump should be ousted from the presidency based on this law?  Why or why not?
