Meanwhile, my Year 11s have moved on from criminal law to civil law. Sadly, this has had some negative effects on their alertness levels. In short, I've averaged at least one kid per class falling asleep at some point. The other day I hit a new low of two asleep at the same time. That wasn't all my fault; I wasn't even talking at the time. Instead they were sleeping through the exciting video on tort law that I'd lined up for them. When it was all murder, rape and kidnapping I had their attention. But now I'm struggling to keep the same vibe going with defamation and possible defences to a claim of negligence. Sigh.
Anybody know any killer youtube comedy clips on pre-trial procedures for civil cases? No?
Well, at least we've only got another few weeks until consumer law. The Checkout has me covered for that one.
