Renaissance Charter Hosts Mock Trial

Students at Renaissance Charter School at Palms West recently participated in a Mock Trial Presentation titled “The Case of the Missing Lunch.” Student roles included that of a judge, bailiff, court reporter, defense attorney/defendant, prosecutor/plaintiff, jurors, witnesses, as well as various teacher guests as spectators. The students enthusiastically embraced their roles as they mastered the standards and objectives related to the Judicial Branch. Hopefully, these young thespians will also triumph in their roles as test-taker as they conquer the seventh grade civics end of course exam in May. Shown here, several student actors were selected to receive the inaugural Brannon Award, named in honor of Principal Sharon Brannon.
