As a culminating activity, Mr. Stracco’s Honors 400 English Class performed a mock trial for the novel, Frankenstein. The students put the main character Victor Frankenstein, the creator of the Creature, on trial for obstruction of justice during the trial of Justine Moritz, third-degree murder for the death of William Frankenstein, and first-degree murder for both Henry Clerval and Elizabeth Lavenza. Every student had a role to perform during this activity from Attorneys, to witnesses, to jury members. Mr. DeBari, Assistant Principal, was the judge during the trial. After a three day trial, students found Victor Frankenstein guilty on all accounts.
Kevin Noh, Kyle Donohue and Jack DeBari (The Prosecution) share notes and ideas for their proceedings
