Kids' Court - For Teachers
Upon the student’s arrival in the courtroom, Judge Pearson greets the class and engages them in a lively discussion about the trial and the American Judicial system. He discusses the importance of each person in the courtroom and describes how each contributes in their unique way. He then describes the “Ask an Inmate” portion of the program and encourages students and parents alike to engage in this “question and answer” segment.
