Resources to aid the role play of Trial of the Warden based on the book Holes by Louis Sachar. Includes a research lesson on trials, a lesson on how to write an eye witness account, task sheets for each member of the trial, character cards, self reflection and peer reflection pages. I did this over a week with a year 8 class and it worked really well. Book out a hall or similar to make it most effective when you actually come to run the trial!

It's a fast-paced professionally set out script with room for you to annotate with Sound/Lighting/Video etc. Delivered in a totally editable word document. Stage directions have also been included.
