will argue in the case in the traditional method
-answering the following question: Can we understand the past, such as the case of Augustina Ruiz from our contemporary lens of mental health or trauma? Group 1 will argue that yes, we can. Group 2 will argue that we must situate the case of Augustina Ruiz through the lens of the time period.
For the next method, your group will either be on the prosecution or the defense of each murderer. I have suggested a few witnesses and you must add more. You can add flourishes to your characters but you must try to use someone from the reading. If you have to add someone, please consider adding someone very specific who could speak to the case and explain their story. Each side will have the opportunity to provide an opening statement, examine witnesses, cross-examine witnesses, and provide closing arguments
