[Recommended] Less Effectively Using Evidence
Visit this website and read about the trial of Sacco and Vanzetti:
Famous Trials: Sacco and Vanzetti
Then write a post assessing the case and the resulting trial. What do you think is the likeliest explanation for the crime of which they were accused? Do you think that in actuality Sacco and Vanzetti were legally innocent or guilty? Why or why not? (Again there are no right or wrong answers for your posts, just–as in a courtroom–arguments made more or less effectively using evidence that you found on the website.) Why do you think they were convicted of these crimes?
After posting, read your classmates’ posts and respond to at least two of them using evidence from the website to show whether you agree or disagree with their assessments of their case using specific evidence from the website to support your ideas.
