AMERICAN STUDIES 2013 SAGN TRIAL
The Trial of the Century: this format gives you an opportunity to demonstrate a deep understanding of the conflicts, characters and themes of Sometimes a Great Notion.
Stay focused on the text, but use the text to support an argument – the text can’t make the argument for you. Your individual grade will be determined by performance in three areas - written work, individual performance and group performance in the trial. You will be assigned to prosecute or defend one of the characters from the book.
