Mystery Net Community Other Mystery Topics Learning with Mysteries Educator-Submitted Lesson Plans
Have the students [high school] read Christie's story, "Witness for the Prosecution." There is ever so much material within this for various discussions. I found success using the story to get the kids to understand the basics of Amendments 4 through 6 of U. S. Constitution; a primer of their individual rights. After discussion of story, character development, plot, twists, turns, red herrings, etc., I then showed the old black and white video. Final evaluation exercise was for the class to write an essay of comparison/contrast between the story and the video. I was pleasantly shocked to discover most of the class prefered the written word to the video. It was a smashing success!
