Innovation Tech students put imperialist on trial in actual courtroom


Prior to the winter break, Innovation Tech students were given the chance to place Great Britain on trial for its role in imperialism. Innovation Tech sophomores spent weeks preparing for their day in court in their Global Literature class. They were then given the chance to showcase their hard work in an actual courtroom using the LaFayette Town Court.

The project was a success, with students working together and taking on the roles of the judge, lawyers, and witnesses. Students conducted a total of two trials – China vs. Great Britain and India vs. Great Britain – to determine whether or not imperialism was done out of moral duty or for selfish reasons. The students were very engaged with the project and enjoyed being able to conduct their trial in an authentic courtroom.
