- Your use of spoken English. The movie/role play will give you the opportunity to show prepared speech in both dialogue and monologue form. For instance, the hearing of a witness will be a dialogue but the opening statement of a defense counsel will be a monologue. The language focus here will be the kind of formal language that is used in a court room and the key vocabulary will be the words and phrases specifically used in the court room during a criminal trial (se word list above).
- Your knowledge of courts and criminal trial procedure in the US. The key knowledge are those presented in the text above (United States - Going to Court), for instance the roles and functions of the court personel, the lay out of the court room, the order in which a case is presented and so on. If you have used other sources, please share them with me in plenty of time before he movie dead line.
