Deep Thinking Friday, 1/8/16

After working on the Mock Trial unit with 6th grade GOAL students, some questions have been circulating in my mind about the American Judicial System.  Watch the following TED Talk (start at 5:36 because it's a little long for a TED talk... feel free to watch the rest at your leisure).


After watching, reflect on and be prepared to discuss the following concepts: injustice, fairness, punishment, equality.  How does the American Judicial System fit in with these concepts?
